Shipwreck Three Sisters
Three Sisters is yet another of Wreck Valley's unidentified ship wrecks.
Her scattered wooden remains sit in 75 to 80
feet of water 13 miles south
of Atlantic Beach Inlet. All that remains to be seen on this wreck is her
boiler, some low lying wood wreckage and a large four bladed steel propeller.
Judging from the size of her propeller and boiler, this vessel could have been
about 80 feet long and possibly the remains of a tug boat. George Quirk found a
brass valve that was dated to the early 1800's on her.
she was, this little wreck produces considerable amounts of fish and lobsters,
but due to her size is best for small groups of divers.
In July of 2008 Capt. Ed
Slater dropped me on the Three Sisters after an offshore dive. If I had
not known what wreck we were anchored to I would have never guessed!.
The wrecks boiler is completely broken down and flattened onto itself.
Her propeller shaft has been pulled off the wreck and now sits on a
right angle to the wreck in the sand off the ships starboard side. Looks
like Mother Nature and her winter storms caused a lot of damage. The
wreck may have changed dramatically but she still holds an abundance of
lobster, blackfish and sea bass.
