The Tiger Shark was sunk in FH-13 on July 9, 2009

090709 Tiger Shark, 495F13 

This large Shrimp Boat was rescued from the Beach in Biloxi and deployed in the Southeast end of FH-13. The surrounding water depth was 88 feet with a water clearance of 51 feet recorded. Unfortunately, as the Vessel sank, the Starboard Boom swung in toward the bow and the imbalance of weight caused the Vessel to list badly. She sunk bow down hard into the bottom and then listed over onto her port side. A dive was made to assess her situation and depth measurements were taken and recorded to Video. Although her orientation is not ideal, the Vessel should still provide excellent fish habitat.
