IMH and BAREG on U-1105 wreck

If weather and luck are kind, BAREG and IMH will deploy the mooring buoy on the U-1105 on 12 April as we do every year to support the Maryland Historical Trust and the Naval History & Heritage Command.  Once the buoy is on, the site is open to the public for diving.  As a reminder to divers who are new to the site, the U-1105 is an Historic Shipwreck Preserve and is protected by federal and state law.  Do not disturb, move, or remove anything on the site.
