I knew a guy who restored a 283 Chris Craft boat. On it's maiden voyage, he turned too sharp and it rolled over and sank in 100 feet of water where it sits to this day 50 years later. sad

Well if it's fresh water it will still be in good shape then.

It is, in dark murky Lake Sakakawea, ND. Nobody seemed to have a good idea where it went down but with a good modern side scanning sonar fish finder, maybe somebody could find it. I know about where it went down to maybe a square mile.

I wonder what ownership rules are. But I'm up for it if you are.

They wanted me to scuba dive around in the mud and look for it way back, but I was only rated for recreational shallow diving. I'm not even rated to snorkel nowadays. blush The owner must be in his 80's by now. I can circle the spot on Google Earth if anybody is interested.

Since it's in mud and much the easiest way would be with a heavy rate earth magnet slowly drag it along the floor until it reacts to the iron engine block.   Then send a remote controlled submersible  to tag it.  Have a diver lined up and send him down to tie onto it. 
   Then pull it up towards the surface where we can bag it. 
   I know how this is done because we pulled a big cruiser off the bottom on Lake Minnetonka. When I was a kid.

I'm sorry guys I just need to freshen this so I can find it easily. 
 I love the juxtaposition of the Art Deco design and Wood.  Those late 40's early 50's woodies  both car and boat have astonishing appeal to me.
