YMS Minesweeper #2 – YMS 359

This minesweeper is in quite good condition and has been extensively explored by SCRET and identified as the YMS 359 based on the numerical marking still located on the bow of this vessel. Puget Sound Divers currently has just 4 dives on this wreck as it has been primarily exploring the third minesweeper this year.

Sitting at 200’ and offering several penetration opportunities this is certainly a nice wreck to dive. On the aft deck both holds have been cut open for engine removal and scuttling but several equipment items remain and the holds are open enough for easy exploration. The bottom is silty so line should certainly be laid.
