Survey of various NOAA Automated Wrecks and Obstructions off Bridgeport Connecticut using an Edgetech 4125 Side Scan Sonar System.November 12, 2015
November of 2014 our team spent a day scanning a number of shipwrecks off of Bridgeport Connecticut. We scanned nine NOAA Automated Wrecks and Obstructions Information System (AWOIS) wrecks. Also, while transiting from one wreck to another with the towfish in the water we stumbled across a new shipwreck. Diver investigation showed it to be a very old unidentified coal barge.
This is the New wreck
Washington, AWOIS 12214 & 12207
(Operator error, accidental range change, but the majority of the wreck is there.)
