James River Scans

Recently I have been running side scan sonar scans near Jones Neck in Henrico County, one particular site area has submerged craft and a feature I am not quite sure of . I believe the imagery return is indicating a collapsed dock as well. The area has a number of submerged craft and features, diving is precluded because of the presence frequently of recreational watercraft and as well its proximity to the ramp. I am attaching it to this entry.

Submerged Craft: Not far from the boat ramp its possible there is more than one wreck at this site. I narrowed the image scan width and this one showed up first.Submerged Craft: Not far from the boat ramp its possible there is more than one wreck at this site.

Using a grid technique this imagery kept reappearing. Further in the old channel many other hits occurred identifying some as Barge and others as possible historic sites of some interests. Water Depths varying from as shallow as 10 feet over one obstruction and the remain section diagonally running to 40 feet of depth.
