While traveling between Mk and DT there are 2 spots that have something sticking out of the water
. The first spot is sunkun ship, it is a 50+ ft steel hull
ship that has a mast
sticking out of the water
about 20 ft into the air, visible from MK on a clear day. The boat is located about 6-7 miles west of MK, if you look at a curent GPS marine
map, it shows as a wreak that is also a nav hazard. The 2nd spot is an old target area where I believe they used to place targets on steel
I beems that are still visable sticking 2-3 ft into the air. These are of much concern to me because they are not obvious on the maps I have and I have almost hit them on 2 different ocations. The old wreak is worth exploring, I like to dive this wreak, there are lots of fish
, usallly clear water if wind
isn't blowing to hard. The water is only 20 ft deep so snorkaling is very easy.
While I have traveled this area extensively in all times of the year, I have never seen any active bombing going on. There are times when you will see military planes flying around and USCG flying around but they are certianly not a threat. The other things you will see while traveling between MK and DT is lots of lobster boats checking there pots, other travelers going between KW and DT, and when you get closer to DT you will see shrimp boats. This is a very active fishing
area. If you can speak spanish, it will help if you need assistance from any of the local fisherman. While traveling this route
, you most certainly will not be alone but getting assistance from someone that you are not in contact with may be the callange. If you are not a member
