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.
Several opportunities exist for penetration and exploration on this vessel. Last month SCRET announced that they recently independently found this same minesweeper. With on-going exploration now being conducted by two independent teams it is hopeful that the identity of this ship will soon be determined.
