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.

Fort Elfsborg project report

An interim report on progress so far is attached.

new boat

The new-to-us skiff is operational and legal.  She will work in shallow waters and decent weather, and can handle four divers with gear -- maybe six at most.  26 feet, 20+ knots, 1970 Pacemaker "Alglas" hull, 1996 Chevy 350 engine (straight inboard), center console, extra fuel tanks, all USCG-required gear, VHF, WAAS DGPS, &c.

She needs a name.  Suggestions?
