SHIPWRECK OF THE NEW ORLEANS

After we completed our de briefing we went over to see if the defiance was buoyed up. This wreck is one I want to do get down to one day but at a depth of 185 ft, I am going to have to be a bit careful with that one. We went over the location of the wreck and you could see some of it on the sonar. Afterwards we skimmed across the rollers and as the sun started to break through the fog, we got to the new orleans location. The Audubon and New Orleans were not buoyed so Joe had to drop anchor right next to the wreck. He landed the anchor right next to both wrecks each time on the first drop!
