Thank you for letting me visit your forum. I am a scuba diver and can loosely refer to myself as a cruiser because of diving on live aboards and boat dives in general. I have had the opportunity to dive lots of easy to reach wrecks and am not a tec diver. I hope to be able to post a photo of a ship that sits in just about 25 feet or so of water off of Panama City Beach in St Andrews Bay at the pass. Locals say it was accidently sunk by another boat returning from watching the July 4, 2005 fireworks out near Shell island. I haven't dived this boat, but we sure have gotten our fishing lines tangled up on her. Anyone know the story? Can anyone help me identify this vessel? Thanx for any info you may have.

Re: Hello

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. Keep a good pair of stainless sheers on you when you dive. You don't want to get caught up in any fishing lines. I don't know the incident in 2005 but there must have been a local news story about it?
kind regards,
