The 2016 field season at the Shelburne Shipyard Steamboat Graveyard ran for three weeks in June and was met with many successes. The project focused on detailed recording of Wreck 2, identified as the Phoenix II by a chisel recovered from the wreck. Directed by Carolyn Kennedy and Dr. Kevin Crisman, the team used SCUBA to reach the submerged site and through the recovered data were able to reproduce scaled drawings of this important shipwreck.
