Artifact Condition: Vessel is completely dilapidated and rapidly decaying into a pile of rubble. It is difficult to identify exactly what type of vessel this might be.
Additional Information: Very little is known about this vessel. It was not surveyed in any great detail. Only two photos were taken and the sub moved on. Tracking was lost during this portion of the dive so depth and position are estimated and relatively close. Upslope from this vessel is a totally dilapidated wooden barge (SBB-11) and between these two vessels are two Holt tractors.
