Features

Small Wreck,

Description

The Dockton Tricabin is an entertaining beginner level wreck found sitting upright in only 35' of water. The boat measures 32' long and has multiple levels for divers to swim around. The wheel and instrumentation can be seen on the top of the boat and there is an old outboard motor sitting on the stern. Peer through the windows or open door at the compartments inside.

This is a nice wreck to visit along with the other Dockton wrecks as a follow-up dive to the Quartermaster Wreck.

Special Restrictions:

Visibility in this harbor is typically very poor (10' would be considered a good), and the bottom is very silty and easily stirred up so navigation underwater is difficult. You may lose your anchor line when it is only a few feet away.

How to get there:

Located near the Docton Boat Ramp found on Maury Island. Depending on the season, you will find this wreck among the many private boats moored off shore in this little cove of Quartermaster Harbor. GPS is the easiest way to find this wreck.

The visibility was really bad on this particular day. The boat has started to break down since I last dove here. It looks like the weight of the old outboard motor sitting on the roof has collapsed it. The most interesting part of the dive was looking at the plankton in the water.

Okay, I tried this site again and the visibility sucked so bad that it wasn't worth suiting up for. The wreck has deteriorated a bit since my last post though it is still upright. It is the only thing that kept this from being a really boring dive.

Pretty fun little wreck. I also stood on the flying deck and let all of the air out of my BCD and my suit and piloted the ghost ship:) Visibility was pretty bad, but that may have been due to how badly we stirred it up after I attached Jeremy to an anchor;>)

Fun and easy wreck dive if visibility cooperates. It would be accessible from shore at the Dockton boat launch but you would probably never find it with the cove's low vis.

Only a few fish to see, but still an enjoyable little wreck. This one has some openings you can look into. Its also fun to sit up on the flying bridge and pilot your ghost ship.
