Another wreck rediscovered over Labor Day Weekend! Originally documented by Christopher C. Hugo in Summer of 1993. She lies in the mouth of Kineo Cove. We had made several attempts to find her starting in 2015 and with a few more clues and good sonar, we managed to drop anchor right on top of the boiler by accident. We hope to identify this wreck for the project.

Divers: Matt Kane, Pat Patrick Laase, Garrett Kane, Nick Fusco, and Ryan Robbins of Moosehead Lake Divers.

Remains of unidentified steamboat in Kineo Cove. Images taken September 2, 2017 by Ryan Robbins of Moosehead Lake Divers. This wreck was originally documented by Chris Hugo in Summer of 1993. Moosehead Lake Divers had been looking for her for two seasons...and finally we found her! Question is what happened to her? Only vessel so far that we've seen with both the steam engine and boiler intact. Compared to other remains we've seen, there's not much scorching. Bow section is broken away from stern at midship. We hope to identify this vessel.

Awesome day today with Aislinn Sarnacki. Big thank you to Matt Kane for being boat Captain and dive buddy today and to Liz McKeil who was our first mate. Aislinn is a Bangor Daily News reporter for the Outdoors pages, focusing on outdoor recreation and Maine wildlife. Visit her main blog at actoutwithaislinn.bangordailynews.com.

Matt snapped this while we were talking with Aislinn up in the wheelhouse of the Katahdin this morning. We followed this with two excellent wreck dives on the Twilight and Priscilla.
Stay tuned for future article about diving on Moosehead and the project!
