    Add a 3rd to the area?

    After visiting those two I continued further north. 10 minutes moderate drifting I came across a 3rd vessel in 28ft of water. About 8 diver lengths long. Upturned, perpendicular to shore, flat to the sand. Twin inboards, appeared stripped. Nice schools of fish around it. Anyone know it's history or location? I'd like to visit it again with a camera.

    Didn’t know about that one Cameron!!! Did it look more like a private vessel? Look like it’s been there very long?

    Somewhat just the hull of this, flat to the sand. I couldn't penetrate. images (28).jpeg

    Fairly clean still, no hard corals yet but soft sponges already.

    At one time the two boats were referred to as the "love boats" as they were in front of the former Love Bar, and the boat launch. As stated, if the current is to the south (normally is) you will be able to see both boats. As an added twist, while tearing up part of Paradise Reef to accommodate another Cruise Ship, the authorities transplanted little coral heads between the two boats. I did not count but there may be 10 to 15 and it makes the dive much more interesting as they are full of life (until the next hurricane).

    WE occasionally do those for our one tank afternoon dives from the Villa Aldora, then after the last boat we swim out to the wall well north of the ferry pier-- for some lion fish hunting in a northern current.

    We dove those I think during a DM/DSD training dive - very little current at the time and I thought it was actually a pretty cool spot to take a beginner. Wasn't there some concrete chunks scattered around too?
