The Triangle Wrecks Survey: A Successful Collaboration between a Federal Agency and Local Dive Shop
Author(s): William S Sassorossi
Maritime Archaeologists from the Monitor National Marine Sanctuary teamed up with divers from the Roanoke Island Outfitters and Adventures Dive Shop of Manteo, NC, to complete a survey of one of the most popular shipwreck sites in North Carolina. Following an underwater archaeology training course with avocational divers supported by the dive shop, a full site recording of Carl Gerhard, a freighter wrecked in 1929 off of Kill Devil Hills, NC, was undertaken. Interest ballooned beyond just those collaborating on the project and many of the anticipated objectives were achieved. Success of the project was evaluated in many ways, with the most critical being the developing partnership between the two main entities.
