After a good day of diving today :D

German light cruiser, 105m long, sank in 1915. Lies on its starboard side, 45 degrees tilt.

Both pictures are from Windermere, UK. Not sure what sort of vessel the first is, but thought it was a catamaran to begin witn, but think it's possibly some sort of twin-hulled work boat, especially as there seems to be a large outboard at the stern. Any suggestions gratefully received.

The second, is a large barge which used to carry gravel and sand across the Lake. It's hull up and it's just possible to see rudder partially turned to starboard.

Sunken Tug in Alameda Channel Near Oakland CA

Post by MELYASH » Sat Jun 13, 2009 9:03 am

My Humminbird Rep on the West Coast Len Venci made a believer out of the folks at Star Marine in Oakland CA by imaging these wrecks, so I figured that would be a great place to start. Not bad for a first try right out of the box.

This is a small tug, less than 35ft two passes one to my starbord one to port . Due to the heavy debris pattern in the area and other wreckage, other angles are very risky to try. Large Plank shaped item is a portion of the dock that collapsed into the water. There is a second tug that is only partially submerged that does not image well next to the large plank.

Note the "easterbunny bubbles" these are more distinct but I think they are a good representation of what I am talking about.

Nice work!
We could make a separate category for easterbunny patterns! ;)

Kevin,
It struck me when I inspected one of your images that the shadow is on the "wrong" side of the barge. This should mean there is a depression and the hull seems to have sunken down deep in the mud. Perhaps it was heavy loaded with gravel when it sank?

Lunkerhunter,
I love random small boat finds! Here is my shallow water favourite.

Rickard

Hi Rickard,
Fantastic picture of the small boat- you almost expect to read the name on it, it's that clear!
I see what you mean about the shadow on the barge, but would have expected the load to fall out when it capsized. (barges were open to the elements) I really don't know the history of the barges, but haven't heard of any being sunk whilst the dredging was still in operation- I think this sunk after everything had shut down in the 1960's- a cheap way of tidying up!

About tidying up, a few hours from my home waters a fleet of barges was deliberately sunk in late 1920-ies. I haven't scanned in the area yet, if I do there's some risk for being spoiled by easy finds. The image is from the Swedish National Heritage Board (Riksantikvarieämbetet). They have a database with (almost) all ancient monuments, including wrecks, in Sweden. These places are also shown on a map. Christmas eve for looters...? So when you find something not on the map you are a discoverer!

M.S Bonita, sank in 1943, 100m long... difficult to get a better scan than this!

Hi Strikeback,

No, still no towfish... all will never get one for the Humminbird.. Just the ordinary transom mounted transducer.

That is a great shot with the transom mounted transducer. What frequency did you use.
