Right on! I just noticed that the reoprts they share links to are labled "Public Report".
I suppose they are protecting us from ourselves by not sharing the other "Non Public" reports. Post up the coordinates anyway and some of us can enjoy checking it out.

RE: ICSD New Shipwreck Challenge...
crystal bay wreck.
lays in 30-32ft. be warned, summer or winter, this bay is normally very low vis.
it is an amazing wreck.and should be shared.
N44 56.696' W93 35.820'


i think the info on this wreck is incorrect. it is a jubilee series, and probably a 1959,but the motor is too large for a 30hp its possibly a 75hp. might have to take another look.

N44 55.432' W93 31.939'

here is the updated coordinates for Robinsons bay wreck off Gibsons point.
lays shallow. for some reason i have had trouble finding this wreck. we found it, then lost it, then found it. this time i got good gps.
JJ was snagged on the boat, and i stopped right on top of it and gps marked it before we then dove it next weekend. small boat, but full of fish in summer. great score to share with the diving community. and highly recommend for beginners .
N44.56.722' W93.31.960'
got to anchor off slightly or you will snag it and destroy what little remains. i think there is more concern that fishermen will wreck it then divers in this case.

Carsons wooden boat
N44 55.432' W93 31.939' Not to second guess the Coordinates for this one but these coordinates point to the third to the last slip at the docks in Carson Bay Harbor

RE: ICSD New Shipwreck Challenge...
After several conversations with popolorbear, I caved in and gave him credit for re-finding the houseboat wreck that Maritime Heritage Minnesota found earlier (and posted a photo of it in their report). I did this partially because it promotes divers to give coordinates to good dive sites, and partially because Stephan is wearing me down. Now this doesn't mean that you can post photos and coordinates to the Emperor or Congdon and expect to get points on the board for it. The intent was to get people looking for non-documented wrecks. If Maritime Heritage Minnesota will not post coordinates to the things they find, all divers should have access to the coordinates to these as we the "recreational dive community" share them with others to enjoy.

As of 12-20-2015, the running totals are as follows:
Detectorguy (John)--------------------8 boats, 1 fish house, 1951 Oldsmobile, & 1967 Camaro

Well seeing how this shipwreck challenge already counts fish houses, lifeguard towers, and cars (AND DEBRIS FIELDS that remain).... can i list the U.F.O. coordinates in lake waconia?

RE: ICSD New Shipwreck Challenge...
I used to work for a superintendent when I was a foreman and I told him that I was giving the guys some lee-way as long as they met productivity goals for each week. I figured that if they guys had some input they would have a vested interest in trying to think for themselves. Some people call this 'buy-in', some people call it shared responsibility, some call it treating workers with respect. The old superintendent told me I was 'letting the nuts run the assylum'. I never forgot that. The challenge is called "The ICSD Shipwreck Challenge" and the focus was to find, photgraph, and get coordinates for non-documented sunken boats. Other divers can go to these coordinates on any given day and see it for themselves. During this process some of us have found other cool stuff that was worth sharing the location with other divers. The first column in the tally sheet is the number of boats found for that diver and after that is other noteworthy dive sites. Is this like no child left behind... that we need to slow down the program so everyone crosses the finish line at the same time? The big winner in this whole deal is the other diver reading this wondering where to go diving, and decides to check out one of these sites. If it offends anyone about showing in the tally sheet things other than sunk boats, let me know and I will chug on over to mamby pamby land and strike it from the list.

RE: ICSD New Shipwreck Challenge...
Yes John, I would like to claim every wreck outside MN that I have dove, that puts my number, well over 100! I EVEN found the America, in the fog, without GPS, and jumped it, alone, because everyone else aboard the Impulse was so freaked out at my locating abilities,,,, well that, and she wasn't certified. I also found the tugboat on the northern end of Isle Royale! I am like a locating machine, with no disconnect, I CAN'T be shut off!!!!!! TRINITY

Whoa, Whoa,,,,Joe, "I" may want to claim that "potential" spacecraft in Waconia, sure it looks like a 12' diameter metal surround to a kidde pool, but it might actually be the second stage to a Saturn 2 rocket booster, I think,, used back during the Gemini space program, ( and I'm a Gemini!) and,,, (((IF)))) I'm correct, when that story breaks, that would put ME at the top of the front page of the Mpls. Star Trib. not that sorry bottom spot I ended in last time I dove Waconia. Besides Dr. Ann gave me, the F-enheimer, not you!, no doubt she knew I was going to claim that spacecraft, and steal all the glory, along with all the cool NASA stuff attached to it!!
