HAd to wait our turn this morning. Two six pack
fishing boats sitting on it when we arrived from
MDR about 9:30 am. Eventually we anchored and
were in the water by 10:20 am or so.

Green, really green for the first 40 ft. After
that it opened up to a good 50'+.

Warm water on top with a nice 58 on the wreck
itself.

Highlights were nice ling in the wreck and
telephone pole pile, while the sand had nice
flattys about. Neither of us brought guns, so it
was just nice to them there. There was a small
piece of drift net snagged on the bow, along
with the dark residuals of the sisal line that
had the bow bound up from last June. Lots of
those wreck crabs in the stanchions with lobsters
tucked in nicely behind them.

Our second dive was on the Star of Scotland. Less
vis and more boat traffic. I found some square
nails in the debris piles.
