Sea Scout Wreck

The “Sea Scout” boat is believed to be a U.S. Army Air Force 104-foot “crash boat;” a WWII fast response boat to rescue downed pilots. It was subsequently used as a training vessel by Sea Scouts and abandoned in the burning basin some time between 1964 and 1980. A photogrammetry model (courtesy of Taylor Picard, East Carolina University) helps to illustrate and interpret the remains of this vessel. Photogrammetry is the process of “stitching” individual photos together and creating a 3D image from thousands of data points within each image. It is a timely process, but the results help to get a better overall perspective of this site.
