Wreck Diving in Lake Washington

wreck of Corsair in Lake Washington

Ever wonder what was under the water as you drive across Lake Washington?  This radio story discusses some of the man-made items that lie hidden from land-lubber eyes.  The story originally aired on FM station KUOW, 02 December 2011.  A transcript is also available.

KUOW producer Ann Dornfeld dove with a dive team made of up members of both The Maritime Documentation Society and Puget Sound Divers.  Both of these organizations have some great photos of underwater wrecks on their web sites.  You can also see video by Dan Warter of the Corsair wreck from this dive in Lake Washington and more information online about the Corsair.

This photo is by Chris Borgen from a dive he did on 1/26/2011.
