At Lewes DE, and on the trip there and back this month, we found 13 new old wrecks in the Delaware and 27 in the Chesapeake that need to be dived and mapped, plus a big bunch of maybes. A sidescan image of one is attached.
There are 17 more sites (16 wrecks and a fort) in the Potomac that also need attention, even if we don’t find anything else in this year’s SHIP recon for the Maryland Historical Trust. That makes 57 sites to map and assess in the near future.
If we start now and do one every weekend, we can finish the lot by Christmas 2010. We can start diving them as soon as we finish SHIP and fetch the U-buoy. Got air?
