WASH-OUT BARGE

This wreck is the remains of a steel barge which sits in 115 feet of water off Long Island's South Shore. According to diver Jim Fazzolare this barge actually sunk beneath the sand so that the top deck is now level with the surrounding sand. Boat captains will have a hard time finding this wreck, in fact they have to look for a wash out on the sea bed. Jim reports that divers can enter the barge from underneath and once inside will find lobsters hanging from the ceiling. Please note that penetration inside any shipwreck should only be done by those with the proper training and experience. In 1995 divers reported that much of this barge has now collapsed.
