The ship is located at a depth of 400 feet – approximately 21 meters beyond the ROV’s intended capability. Most of the hull is either buried or missing due to the explosion so there wouldn’t be a whole lot to see other than some wooden planks sticking up from the bottom. Lastly, several legal hurdles would need to be overcome (I have no idea what is involved at this moment. I imagine a permit of some kind).
However, I think it would be awesome to get hi-def video of the Onondaga, a ship that was deliberately demolished by explosives in the middle of Seneca lake.
It would also be a great way to push the limits on the design and perform historical research.
