Lake Butte Des Morts Dive June 11 2016

float-bridge-perquimans-river-1890

Saturday afternoon, Gretchen and Jordan dove on the remains of the old float bridge structures and the pilings from the old wagon bridge.  

Visibility was much better at this end of the lake and Gretchen wins the scrounge diver prize for her Montgomery Ward trolling motor.

There was also some additional propellers left on these shallow, unmarked structures.

On Sunday, Jon McKenzie and I were able to drop in on zones 2, 3, and 7.

Zone 2 was comprised of two large trees lying parallel to the current to the west and some miscellaneous wood pieces not attached to any structure, one of which was heavier with two holes bored 90 degrees from each other.

There was also a teacup recovered at this site.Pictures were taken and the items were returned to the site.

The bottom was heavy silt.Zone 3 had a large stump with a tree lying next to it with some silt over red clay.

Zone 7 had a few trees on red clay.

It was really good to get out and explore some local waters!
