Until this wreck is identified, there really isn't much to say. It appears to be a small fishing trawler very similar in configuration to the Fenwick Isle or Amanagansett. There was an 8-track tape reportedly recovered from the wheel house, so we know the wreck is relatively recent. For the youngsters: see 8-track tape

Diving Depths: 160 ft.
Current: Slight to I suspect strong/undiveable.
Visibility: 60+ feet
Summer Temperature: High 70s
Points of Interest: Intact fishing vessel draped in nets
Fish/Animal Life:This wreck is not visited very often, so it could be just about anything.
Description: This trawler is intact and laying on its starboard side. The wreck is small and very easy to navigate and can be completely covered in one dive despite the depth. When I visited the wreck, the current was "moderate" on the bottom, running from stern to bow across the length of the wreck, but the water was clear. Lots of dark fish holds and cabins to explore, but be careful. Also, watch out for the nets hanging around the wreck. Getting entangled at 160 feet would not be a fun experience. Because it is infrequently visited, condition, depth and generally good viz, I would rate this over the Fenwick Isle or Amanagansett as the trawler dive "of choice".
