The Houghton Bay area of Lake Washington is a literal junk yard from the old Lake Washington Ship Yards. This area is the site of several burned wrecks and scuttled vessels. It was originally thought that is area was reasonably well described but recent forays into the area have consistently turned up more wrecks.
Our team has scanned the entire area and has identified more than 30 wrecks for eventual exploration. This last week Scott Boyd of Emerald Sea Photography worked in the area and obtained images of two wrecks tucked into some of the natural geography that were previously unidentified. This solid work by Scott demonstrates the exceptional capabilities of his sidescan unit for shallow area survey.
