A St Mary’s shipwreck hunter is warning that there’s a tractor in the roads. That’s 14 metres down in St Mary’s Roads.

Todd Stevens was diving with a friend on Sunday, investigating a wreck site he’s observed recently.

On closer inspection, he says it appears that there are two vehicles on the seabed. Todd would normally expect to find old farm machinery that had been ditched close to the shore, not 400 meters off the Bacon Ledge.

He thinks they may have sunk whilst being towed, as there’s a large iron cable nearby. But he’d like to hear from any islander who may know more.

It’s not the most unexpected item he’s found. Previously Todd uncovered a sewing machine, off the Steval.
