SEA GIRT

The Sea Girt was a clammer that sunk in August of 1990. According to diver Dave Keller, the Sea Girt originally settled on her starboard side but latter rolled upright due to sand being scoured out from under the hull. She now sits in 80 feet of water.

Another Wreck is also known as the Sea Girt Wreck. According to underwater photographer Herb Segars  the Sea Girt lies in about 82' of water and has a lot of holes for lobstering. The ribs run for about 250' and you can find lots of interesting things. For photographers, the ribs are loaded with frilled anemones and the anchor and winch make great subjects if the visibility is good. This shipwreck was named for its location off the town of Sea Girt. It was an old sailing schooner whose history is unknown. The wreckage consists of two parallel walls about four feet high with a lower center rib. At the east end of the wreck is the bow section which is broken down but you can find a pile of anchor chain, a large anchor and the winch that was used to raise and lower it.
