Montana & Karen Jean wreck Charter 6/24/18

Montana & Karen Jean wreck Charter 6/24/18

GIANT STRIDE DIVE SHOP

All Day

The Montana was a Schooner converted to a barge, originally built in 1870 with a length of 165’ and a beam of 35’. She foundered in a storm January 21, 1907 and lays upright with a maximum of 12-15’ of relief off the bottom in 80-85’ of water.        The 55 foot long tugboat Karen Jean sank off Point Judith, Rhode Island. The tug was towing a 110 foot long barge with a cargo of crane parts when it developed a list due to bad weather.  A Nor’easter had developed with 8’ waves and wind gusts reaching 40 knots.  The tug list worsened and suffered water ingress. The vessel quickly began to sink only allowing enough time for the 4 crew on board to send out a distress call and abandon ship into a life raft.  Without gumby (survival) suits, the crew held onto the life raft when the nearby fishing vessel Merit came to their aid.   No reports of injuries to the 4 crew. The Karen Jean sank in 88 feet of water with its towline still attached. This wreck is small but really interesting and lays turtled, listing to the port side. Reservations are made by full pre-payment that is non refundable. If you cancel your reservation you forfeit the full payment. If our captain cancels the trip, we issue a full refund if you paid in cash and a store credit if paid by credit card.
