I know the group involved, have been researching the PM's where abouts for a long time, including talking to local fishermen whom have gotten nets tangled up on something in the search area.

No fluke, but a little luck always helps, along with side scanning sonar.

Who wants to go?

 

Regards

Ramon was the Captain when she went down, but was not part of the search group.

Giram (Pato), the Captain aboard Piesquita that made the search trip, was a crew member on the PM when she went down and drifted for 36 hours I believe, prior to being picked up.

Regards

Hiram!

When I use a J, they use a G, when I use G, they use an H, which I would have used to begin with, had I not been lead astray.

Feliza, please have all your staff spell their names frenetically.

 

Thanks

 

Seamus

We had a meeting with all this people involve in the expedition and decide to keep the location of Poseidon's secret until we clear the area and we make sure is safe to dive, because the nets of the fishing boats and stuff around is very dangerous to penetrate now, and we are afraid people get too excited and do mistakes, we don't want accidents, but for sure we will do this ASAP and hopefully soon we all can go to the Poseidon, we do have the anchor at the shop and will keep there.

Way to go, Feliza.  This is so cool.  Can you say depth of the dive at this point?

Depth is about 60 feet, like the Ferry boat, not too deep, but dangerous because the boat conditions, but as far we know, boat is complete, no brocken in parts, is going to be a very cool spot for diving!!

Hello Feliza and all who have responded to this post. I was the owner of Poseidon's Mistress and have just been informed of her discovery. It was a very sad day when I, in the US at the time, was told that she was going down. I was supposed to be on that trip, but rearranged my schedule at the request of the previous dive group. In spite of the circumstances that the passengers had to go though, I was relived to know they all had the strength to get to shore or were rescued. God was watching them that day. I subsequently made attempts to locate the boat, but to no avail. One of the the skiffs managed to float to Bahia Kino, where two of the on-board kayaks ended up as well. I still have the life-ring that was stationed on the side of the vessel, and that's the only tangible thing I have to remind me of that great dive boat and her adventures.

I had given up hope of the boat ever being found years ago, and was hopeful that it would become a great dive spot for a good wreck dive. At least that has come true. I hope I can someday visit her again. She has many stories to tell if you listen carefully when you visit...

And for those of you who did have the privilege of visiting, I remember you. I kept all the visitor logs. And notes. Lots of notes!!! :-D

One other thing. Pato was one of our crew members. And a great guy. Although he was listed on our despacho as "Hiram", like "the Walker drink." You guys are lucky to have him as a crew member. He's solid.
