Description

Over the course of three days, our Basic Workshop will teach students the basics of surveying a shipwreck. We will cover: Ship Terms, Laws and Ethics, Research, Survey Tools, and Trilateration (the technique we use to measure shipwrecks) as well as much more. The workshop is designed for divers and non-divers. The work is also appropriate for novice divers. At the completion of the class, all students will become members of MAST and invited to take part in field work. The cost of the class is $175 and covers all materials needed, breakfast and lunch in April, as well as the dinner program on April 13. Please note: this is a three day class - a full weekend in April with classroom and dry run practicals. Then one of two days in May for in-water practice (May 18 or 19).

A block of rooms has been reserved at the Maumee Bay Lodge in Oregon, OH for this event. You can reserve a room for April 12 and 13 by calling (419) 836-1466 x 1 and mentioning you are with the Maritime Archaeological Survey Team. The room rates for this group is $124.

The dinner program on Saturday night is open to the public and you can purchase extra tickets below. It will be the annual meeting of the MAST membership, as well as an excellent presentation by MAST's own Nancy Fisher, Master's Student at the University of Malta, finishing her degree in Underwater Archaeology. She will be presenting on her dissertation project, which stems from work that MAST did on the Admiral.
"How useful is citizen science to maritime archaeology in Lake Erie? My study compares the work of a citizen scientist based boat plan to a systematic 3D photogrammetry survey within Lake Erie. My dissertation hopes to support the need for citizen science in Maritime Archaeology, especially in less than favorable conditions. The study focuses on the Admiral, highlighting the importance of 20th-century steel tugboats. I also hope to honor the lives of the men lost aboard the Cleveco and the Admiral"
