Default wreck of the schooner RED WING (1896) in 340 feet of water

Howdy y'all. Here is some video of the suspected schooner RED WING, lost in 1896 en route from Havana, Cuba to Moss Point, Mississippi. This deep wreck rests is 340 feet of water southeast of Pensacola. Surprised there were no warsaws or other grouper on the wreck. Enjoy!


Cheers,
Mike

Good video. I am surprised there are not more fish and also surprised that lionfish can survive at that depth.

At 340ft, what does your ascent and descent look like? Ie, how long does the ascent/descent take?

Lionfish have been documented to over 1,000 feet and we have seen them fine and happy during upwelling events when water temperature was 48 degrees, so they are petty resilient.

We left the bottom at around 20 minutes (took about 4 minutes to hit the bottom) and our total run time was just under 2 hours. I think our first required decompression stop was around 120 feet or so, but the deeper stops are only for 1-2 minutes or so...

Dang, that's awesome diving like that...purty dern spooky! Already had my answers from the ascent/descent aspect. Until I actually saw someone, I thought it was a rover of some type....

LOL. Really surprised there were no warsaws or other deep water species, or at least more fish. Weird.
Hope to have some more up soon - have a few more targets to look at up that way. If anyone knows of other deep water wrecks they might be curious about, I am always interested in diving new stuff!

The anchor was the money shot. Thanks for sharing. I guess since there seems to be a lot of the ship structure still vertical the location isn't common knowledge?
