Large Wreck,


The Roy A. Jodery is a 600’ - 700’ long technical wreck dive located in the St. Lawrence River at depths ranging from 150’-240’. The relatively modern diesel powered steel freighter is in very good condition and you can see a fracture in the center of the hull (the deepest portion of the wreck). On the bow section, the tear from the impact and other damage caused by its sinking are also visible.

Plan to drop in up current and drift into the wreck. According to Vlada Dekina’s website, around 140-145ft would land you on top of the pilot house. 160 to 170 would have you close to the railing on the main deck. 180 to 190ft would have you either close to chain locker or the port anchor, depending on how close to the wall you decide to be. The Stern is lying on its starboard side. Source: Vlada Dekina’s website

The freighter was part of the Algoma Steel fleet until she struck a shallow just off Alexandria Bay, N.Y. on Nov 20, 1972 while attempting to deliver 20 000 tones of steel to Detroit. The impact tore the keel of the ship causing it to sink in less than four hours. The captain and all 29 crew members survived, after attempting to beach the ship on the shores of Wellesley Island.
