Sonar image of the wrecks of the Georgiana and Mary Bowers (made with a Humminbird 1198c side imaging sonar) also showing the boat’s track. The bow of the Georgiana is pointing towards the upper left hand corner of the sonar image, while the frames in the bilges of the bow of the Mary Bowers are just below that. The track of the sonar cuts across just aft of the bows of both vessels.
