Plan: See the Tiller Wreck Again
Chuck and I arrived at the Beacon Harbourside marine and took a small dive charter boat called “Bottom Time” out to the Tiller Wreck and kitted up. I decided to leave my shoes at the dock so it was one less thing to loose. This left me barefoot for the entire trip. We did a backwards rear-entry into the water then down the buoy line down to 24m where we saw the wreck loom into view. We started on the port side where we could see the large tiller sticking up out of the silt. The wreck was encrusted in zebra muscles. Visibility was amasing but we froze as it was very, very cold at this depth.
It was a great dive, although only 30 mins long due to the great depth.
I met someone on the boat who will send me some photos of the dive.
