    The Princess Anne is 350' long, 60' wide 20' high. It was a car ferry used to carry over 200 passengers and cars over the Chesapeake Bay. Sunk in 1993, this wreck sits in at about 110'. It is in a state of collapse, dangerous to penetrate! Several divers have died in it's interior.

    The above description is no longer quite accurate, as you will see in this video it has collapsed upon itself and is starting to resemble a huge pancake. It's almost impossible to get lost inside the remaining spaces because they simply aren't that big.

    @IncreaseMyT and his son make an appearance in this one at 1:09. [The other 2 divers in the video are my 2 siblings, my sister is an avid diver who lives in Florida and my brother joins our group once or twice per year].

    Edited to add: According to T, those 2 divers are NOT T and his son.

    Cool video, I don't think that is us though I had a scap on and no light on my camera.

    Who else could it be? There was no one else on the boat other than the older fellow who joined the charter and pretty much kept to himself. I think it's definitely your son in front, could be the old guy in the back if he was diving with the two of you. Was he?

    Your son had the GoPro with the selfie stick, right?

    I have no idea man, but thats not us. Isaiah has blue all over his wetsuit and really long hair. I wore a scap every day, I always do when I am around sharks because they may mistake your shiny head for a baitfish. Thats why bald men get bit in the head.

    Isaiah has really long hair, and I was diving a half shorty. Long arms but no legs. I also was not wearing a safety sausage on those dives, I was wearing my SMB and I clip that on my waist D ring, not the one on my chest.

    If you would like I can post a video so you can see what we were wearing.

    No I have a Paralenz, thats how I know thats not me or him as well. No need for a light with the Paralenz.

    That I think is the guy from the first day that sat up by me. He was telling me about his camera, it was a knock off GoPro he bought in Thailand for 60 bucks.

    Yes one of them could be the old dude who kept to himself. I didn't pay much attention to him and don't even know if he carried a camera and a selfie stick. But what about the other diver- he or she was not part of my personal group of me, my girlfriend, and my 2 siblings or the woman who joined our charter (she wears a blue wetsuit and has long hair).


    Edit- then again it could be old dude in the front and the diver in the back could be my brother.

    Not sure man cause Isaiah's wetsuit is clearly blue, and he has long hair. That guy doesn't have long hair. I doubt you will be able to find a shot without me and Isaiah in it. He is not allowed to leave my right hand side on dives, unless we trade and I follow him.

    I did let him do 1 swim through with your brother, but thats it.

    If you go to minute 2 and 15 seconds you can see Isaiah has really long hair and blue arms on his suit.

    Also in the video, where I am cleaning up the fishing line, you can see I have the shorty, scap and SMB on my hip.

    I'm going to ask the rest of the group but it seems we have a mystery. There was no one else out there. Unless another boat dropped divers on top of the wreck while we were on it or approaching it from our drop off up current.

    Yea I am not sure, I can look through my footage. I only put footage in that video that no one else could have cause me and Isaiah were by ourselves. I was waiting to put up any penetration stuff or group stuff because I wanted to be courteous and let you go first cause it was your group thing. I mainly made the video to show you the Cobia.
