The Wrecks of Winnipesaukee

Please Note: The Weirs Historic Signs lecture originally scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 12 has  been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. This lecture will be held in its place.

Scuba Diver and History Buff Hans Hug, Jr. will present “Wrecks of Winnipesaukee,” Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 6:30 p.m. in Taylor Community’s Woodside Building. The event is free and open to the public.

An avid diver for 31 years, Hans has traveled throughout New England enjoying scallop diving and searching for shipwrecks and artifacts, including bottles, guns ceramics and more.  Using sophisticated side scan sonar equipment, he has dived all over Lake Winnipesaukee, locating more than 80 boat and barge wrecks, including large pieces of the original steamer Mt. Washington. Hans has captured hundreds of images and videotaped all of them. The lecture will include a brief video of one of his dives, along with photographs and sonar images of wrecks. There will be plenty of time for questions from the audience following the presentation.
