GPS Marks for H.C. Piggot and Dunloe

Postby lloyd_borrett » Tue, 19 Mar 2019 12:07 am

G'day,

It's been reported (18-Mar-2019) that the GPS marks in the database for the Piggot and Dunloe are incorrect. VSAG went to dive there and didn't find the wrecks.

So I've done some digging.

Victoria's Ship's Graveyard book, plus some other even older sources, all have the GPS marks we're currently using on the web site.
Dunloe: 38 21.360, 144 24.205 - https://www.scubadoctor.com.au/divesite.htm?site=Dunloe
Piggot: 38 20.651, 144 26.368 - https://www.scubadoctor.com.au/divesite ... .C.-Piggot

I've found different marks attributed to Rowan Stevens in a couple of places.
Dunloe: 38 21.360, 144 24.405
Piggot: 38 20.751, 144 26.095

It would be great if someone could verify that the Rowan Stevens GPS marks are okay, either by confirming that they've used them successfully, or by checking them out.

Best regards, Lloyd Borrett.

We've now been given two more marks for the Dunloe. See https://www.scubadoctor.com.au/divesite.htm?site=Dunloe for the details.
