  Shipwreck Three Sisters

 The Three Sisters is yet another of Wreck Valley's unidentified ship wrecks.  Her scattered wooden remains sit in 75 to 80  feet of water 13 miles  south of Atlantic Beach Inlet. All that remains to be seen on this wreck is her boiler, some low lying wood wreckage and a large four bladed steel propeller. Judging from the size of her propeller and boiler, this vessel could have been about 80 feet long and possibly the remains of a tug boat. George Quirk found a brass valve that was dated to the early 1800's on her.

 Whatever she was, this little wreck produces considerable amounts of fish and lobsters, but due to her size is best for small groups of divers.

In July of 2008 Capt. Ed Slater dropped me on the Three Sisters after an offshore dive. If I had not known what wreck we were anchored to I would have never guessed!. The wrecks boiler is completely broken down and flattened onto itself. Her propeller shaft has been pulled off the wreck and now sits on a right angle to the wreck in the sand off the ships starboard side. Looks like Mother Nature and her winter storms caused a lot of damage. The wreck may have changed dramatically but she still holds an abundance of lobster, blackfish and sea bass.
