And this isnt the old steam pipe from NAS or ECUA wastewater outfall? I'm not asking for its local, just curious if it's something most already know about. If not, do you know what it's purpose was by its location?

Ok, now my feelings are hurt. Why aren't you guys sharing all of these "well known numbers" with the rest of us?

Was that to me? You've scanned the steampipe, I believe. I wouldn't know the #'s anyway. You just line those up the old fashioned way. Maybe you answered my question??? I dont know.

Nope, I have not scanned that spot, but hope to soon. It sounds pretty interesting.

Nice pics WhackUm! So since this is obviously not a "top secret" bay spot like some numbers that we find via side scan in the bay, can anyone chime in on its general local or how to try and find it? I don't want "go to this coordinates and it's there" kind of info, just helpful info on how to find it myself with our side scan unit.

My cousin and I are buying a 598ci HD SI combo next month and are looking to really explore some of the bay and learn it better. If someone is up for that shoot me a PM as I don't want to clog up WhackUm's pic thread.
