    DUDE- I say again- a two boat flotilla of the majestic Deep Thought and the intrepid if diminutive MAC Animal would be a super Isle Royal raft up in Duncan Bay. The "Red Antifreeze" could be administered a bit early.....:D

    E.M. Clark 250 ft to the sand located in the warm clear water off the North Carolina coast. Usually lots of Sand tiger sharks . Also have seen mako and one encounter with a Great white.:D

    The second would be the St. Augustine 260 ft located off the coast of Maryland. Cold ,dark water but the wreck is absolutely magnificent.

    That sounds very cool, can you post a charter operator and season that typically has diveable weather.

    Sand Tiger, Mako and GW...puts you low on the food chain.

    Re: What is your favourite wreck....

    I dive with a charter boat the O.C. Diver based in oc Maryland . Ted Green is the skipper and he takes his boat down in June for a month.Very few boats are willing to do the deeper stuff. Ted himself dives a homebuilt breather. When we came down on the Clark this year there was over fifty sand tigers on the deck. They just parted and let us do our dive . Very cool indeed. Did manage to get a reel good thump on my back from a huge amber-jack. Guess he thought my CCr dolphin looked like a meal. Scared the sh*t out of me thought i was going to be eaten right then and there.

    Teds web site is www.ocdiver.com All the contact info is on there .He is one of the finest divers and skippers around.

    Re: What is your favourite wreck....

    Not long ago on this form I was pontificating on wrecks and wrecks of Chuuk or Truk Lagoon.

    Today my o.c. dive buddy George who is 83 brings his brother-in-law (Robert Kanze) into the dive shop to introduce him to me. Know I remember Geo telling me that his brother-in-law was a fighter pilot in WW II, but I had no idea that he was in the battle of Truk Lagoon.

    The story unfolds that Robert Kanze was shot down in his Hell Cat fighter off Dublon island in April of 1944. He was close enough to shore to be seen and was taking rifle fire, so he partially deflates his raft and proceeds to paddle out of the lagoon. Robert was picked up by a submarine the next day after firing a flare gun and using his signal mirror.

    Very cool story and very personal experience, now I have a quest for the Truk Lagoon trip in March!

    Locally,

    1. SS Ulonga,
    2. About an hours drive south of Adelaide, SA, 20km's offshore
    3. 39 to the sand.
    4. Its the only deeper wreck locally, VERY tight and silty penetrations, good fishlife, and a pretty good wreck to look at, even though its relatively small.
    http://www.divedoc.net/uwimaging/sea...w=1&criteria=7 the last 4 pics, these are all Harry's.

    Interstate, I'm with Bear, the St Paul rocks, great "mysterious" wreck, I was one of the two divers in the first pic from his second trip, that he posted in this thread,

    but I can't go past the SS Yongala.
    1. SS Yongala
    2. Off Cape Bowling Green, Townsville, QLD
    3. 28m to the sand, 14 on top of the wreck
    4. UNBELIEVABLE fish life on it, you aren't allowed to penetrate it but the fishlife on this wreck has to be seen to be believed! EVERYTHING on this wreck is BIG, and there are lots of them. I've seen shovelnose rays, Bull Sharks, Guitarfish, Sawtooth's, Eagle Rays, Massive Black Rays, HUGE QLD Grouper, GT's everywhere, loads of sea snakes, Morays, you name it, its there, and lots of em.

    Worth the trip to Oz just for this dive!
