Initial Notification: On March 27, 2018, the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS) staff contacted the local NOAA SSC to request a drift estimate of submerged vessel debris from a grounded, 35-ft sailing vessel (S/V EAN NA MARA) that broke apart on 12-JAN-2018 near Pacific Grove, CA. Subsequent dive and side scan sonar surveys have been unable to locate keel and engine. MBNMS has requested any information that might assist in future subsurface surveys for the vessel debris.
