SHIPWRECKS OF THE FLEETWING & THE CHRISTINA NELSON IN BAILEYS HARBOR

Shipwreck of the Fleetwing
 

After leaving Cave County Parks we made our way over to Baileys Harbor where a keelson skeleton remains of the Neilson.  She is a bit off shore but only in 10 feet of water so visiting this wreck was not hard to do. I swam out there to visit the wreck and quickly came back as there was not much to see of it anymore.

Afterwards we made our way over to the Fleetwing.  The Fleetwing is right off of a beach and is a shipwreck preserve….I donned my dive gear and swam out to buoy where I descended down 25 ft to the remains of this wreck.  There is haul planking, fasteners, and some structure left to this shipwreck but there is not much left of it. It was nice to visit the site and see the historic relic.
