081011a Elsie M Landing Craft, 490F1 

This 50′ X 16′ Landing Craft was donated by the Gulf Islands National Seashore after replacing the aged vessel. They used this vessel to transfer equipment from the mainland to the National Seashore Islands off Mississippi. The vessel was anchored around 11am and took a little less than an hour and a half to sink in the 66 feet of water. It had about 6 feet of relief off the bottom.
