Description

A 2003 deeptow survey for a pipeline in the Viosca Knoll lease area of the Gulf of Mexico detected a shipwreck near the proposed pipeline project area. Discovered on a line turn, the shipwreck rests in 2,000 feet of water outside of the pipeline corridor. Initial indications from the high-resolution geophysical data suggested the wreck might be Bradford C. French, a late nineteenth century three-masted schooner lost during a 1916 hurricane. A site investigation was planned during the 2004 Minerals Management Service (MMS) DeepWrecks Project, but adverse weather made investigating the site impossible at that time (Church et al. 2007). The MMS later sponsored a site investigation in July 2006.show more
