Puget Sound Divers discovers third minesweeper in Lake Washington

This new mine sweeper titled YMS #3 was initially discovered by Puget Sound Divers in June of 2007. This is truly an amazing find and is the most intact of all the known Minesweepers in Lake Washington. A significant amount of equipment remains on this vessel as does nearly the entire bridge structure and upper decking.

With on-going exploration now being conducted by two independent teams it is hopeful that the identity of this ship will soon be determined.
