Default Anyone seen the Tug Sylvia lately?

Hey Guys. I surveyed the area of Tug Sylvia yesterday with my side-scan sonar system. I started my search pattern at the public numbers (30 11.190 N 87 14.070 W) but I did not find anything that looked like a ship. However, I did find a debris field surrounding the area. Some of of the debris pieces were quite large and close to the public number.

Of course it is possible that the tug is there but I did not find it.

Has anyone out there been diving on Tug Sylvia lately?

Thanks!

Last time I was there was several years ago, and it was buried up to the gunwales. It's been down since the 1980s, so I guess it had a pretty good run! Nothing lasts forever down there!

After Ivan, the only thing that was exposed was a small portion of the bow.

Thanks Jim. I wonder if this bit of debris is the bow.

Thanks Ron. Didn't know if I found the spot or not.

I'd have to check my notes which I don't have access to right now but we dove it last year and I am pretty sure I remember seeing more than that. We had two sets of numbers for it though and they weren't close. I know, not much help. I need to look at my other PC.
