MG111 Barge
Physical Data
and Notes

by Dave Gillings.
September 17, 2005

Dive Notes:

This was backup dive by the team because visibility on Diamondhead Radnor was less than 3 ft. This dive was to also set benchmarks on the new "Warrior Reef" immediately north of the MG-111. Warrior is concrete poles and 15-ft tall pillars spread out to the north and northwest from MG-111. More than 15 of the pillars remain upright-making it like swimming through Greek ruins. Map team (MT) set benchmarks (#1 & 3) on stakes at two locations on Warrior Reef. MT saw at least three goliath groupers hanging on the MG-111 as we swam past the wreck to Warrior Reef. MT was unsuccessful at getting GPS marks for the new benchmarks, but will sketch map of locations.
