To follow up on Pat's report.
While cruising around looking at the wreck on one of the rare times you can actually see its shape, I decided to pick up fishing sinkers but only ones with at least one of the two end loops intact. By the end of the dive, I just about needed to fully inflate my BC (admittedly it is a horse collar) to get to the surface. I now have enough sinkers to keep my fishing buds and I “in lead” for years to come. Other interesting thing was among all the debris Pat described were a couple of tangled up lobster traps and one had 4 clearly legal bugs in it. They must have been in there for at least 6 months but looked and acted fine when I set them free.
PS - this is the place I was just about run over by a big ship some time ago and Pat got the great pictures of it going by own marker bouy/flag.
