The Blue Water crew has had an active and fruitful 2021 summer. Our first order of business was to complete a full side scan sonar survey of the area. The weather on site was perfect for this task, calm winds and flat seas. The data showed us some really great hits, and upon a site inspection from our divers, we felt confident that we had new targets to begin work on an expanded grid of the sb Pulaski Admiralty area.
The guys got busy and did a full area reconnaissance of the new target areas. With a lot of sand moving using the Blue Water Rose blowers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxDbOYdbA04 we're pretty confident that the keel section of the Pulaski has been identified. We've recovered a lot of shipwreck material, and a nice amount of coins along the way. Stay tuned for an update on the coin count.
We also hosted the film crew from Expedition Unknown, a Discovery Channel favorite. With the new area identified, we were able to put show host Josh Gates on a good target. You will have to watch the show to see if he recovered anything shiny! August 25, 2021 8pm est.
