Cool...It sure looks like it's sitting along a long stretch of straight roadway with water on both sides. Texas City Dike maybe?? Would have to be on the West side if that's the case. It would make sense that they're doing this survey to clear the waterways for commercial traffic first. The channel would be the first areas scanned.
Thanks for the link.

Shipwreck in Galveston Bay not a new discovery

A shipwreck found recently by marine surveyors in Galveston Bay isn't a new discovery at all - state officials already knew it was there. She might have gone down during a storm, but it wasn't Hurricane Ike.
The 'rediscovery' was made two weeks ago by experts using a side scan sonar survey to locate debris from Ike that settled on the bottom of the bay, said Jim Sudyam, a spokesman for the Texas General Land Office. State officials plan to use the findings to help land a debris removal contract for Galveston Bay.
Sudyam provided me with some scintillating details about the ship. This from an e-mail he sent to me today:
It appears we've found a previously known and charted historical shipwreck. The ship is the Acadia, a Civil War blockade runner that was sunk by Union forces. There are about 300 artifacts from this ship - including the toilet - at the Brazoria County Historical Museum.
More information about the ship can be found at Handbook of Texas online.

Some speculation that there is some subterfuge going on around this shipwreck until they can positively deny it. Sounds a little fantastic, but maybe not out of the question.

Seems to me regardless of ike, that some fishermen probably marked something on their sounders on top of, even if they didn't know what it was..

Isn't the Acadia the same as the old "boilers" down near Surfside on the Gulf side?

This is the Acadia, near the boilers (Surfside). I found it humorous to hear the ship has been "discovered". The name of the beach where it is located is "the Boilers", in fact, because the old boiler stacks from the ship were visible until the 1960's.

But the Acadia was a much larger ship than this is described to be. Also...the fact that the Acadia (aka: the boilers) is SOOO widely known, I don't think this is the same ship.

I am more apt to think that bringing the Acadia into the story is a diversion from the truth until more info on the new shipwreck is known and to keep people from snooping around to find it.
