    It's a very pretty ferry...I wonder if it will be just as pretty underwater...

    Are there any thoughts on an artificial reef project?

    The AE Vickery is fascinating to me. My expectations for a wooden ship was based on the NJ schooner barges - a small pile of what used to be a wreck and maybe a shot at finding a dead eye. Penetrating a wooden ship was something I never thought I would do.

    Although no one is going to sink a restored tall ship where would we begin the discussion about an intentional sinking?

    A small Conroy motor boat was just intentionally sunk at Bonnie Castle. You can find it by following the line from the cove just to the left of the boat launch toward the training platforms. Once at the first platform in 30 feet of water, descend the suspension cable to the skeleton. Facing the skeleton swim to your right. Pick up the guideline that starts at the far right block. Follow it until you hit a large piece of metal that looks like an L-shaped plow. Take a NW compass heading off that and in several kicks you'll see the small motorboat in about 70 feet of water.

    Thanks for that. I was there not long ago but didn’t know about the boat, we went to the car.

    In the late 1990s there was an attempt at bringing a retired Canadian destroyer to the Brockville area. I did some survey dives for the project. Unfortunately it failed.
