The Margaret is an unknown shipwreck, said to be that of a tug boat.
She sits only one mile south of Deb's Inlet in 40 feet of water.
In 1985, when I dove this wreck, visibility was so bad that I
couldn't even see what my hand was touching. I did feel a lot of
steel cable draped over what appeared to be a hand railing. Because
of her location, which is so close to the mouth of Deb's Inlet, a
strong current, which kicks up sediment and reduces visibility is
usually present making the wreck inaccessible, or at least
undesirable for divers. I have, however, seen many charter fishing
boats anchored over the Margaret and have heard that if you don't
mind losing some lead sinkers, fishing for black fish on the
Margaret can be quite productive.
