Default Short video-20 foot steamer

Vessel as wrecks go is in great shape; At first I questioned if it really was as narrow as the sonar image portrayed-it is. This image was posted a while ago with several other wrecks.

Talking Wow!

Thank for sharing this exciting find with us! She looks as though she could be raised and restored. Very excellent stuff.

I'm going to suggest that this boat is Not a Steamer. Not much room for the boiler. The "V" Transom is more suggestive of a boat built around 1915. In this case...with an early gas engine..maybe one cylinder. Steam was going away.

The Steamers usually had a "Fantail" stern: (Sweeping curve around the stern). Can't find a picture just yet.

The Antique Boat Museum in Clayton, NY has as their Logo boat the "Wild Goose" with the "V" transom. It is 40 feet long and 7 feet wide. (1915) She started out with a 150HP Sterling straight 6 cylinder. Currently with a modern V8. NB

I'm probably stating the obvious but I assume this vessel was scuttled being that nothing remains inside except for a large rock.

By the way, I want to give a shout out to Diver1111 for some great posts. Myself not being a diver, I love seeing these videos.

NB I agree now that I look harder at it that it was likely gas powered. I have also seen steamers that don't have the fantail. I was surprised to see the prop still on it.

4 more wrecks found this week-need to dive and film them.
