Section A: This main section of the site consists of the vessel's heavy keelson assembly and bilges. These include the keel , keelsons, floors, lower portion of the centerboard trunk, and mast steps. The mast steps and centerboard trunk are clearly visible. The centerboard trunk is especially interesting because little information on their construction exists in the historical record. The upper part of the trunk lies northeast of the boat launch in approximately 15 feet of water. Another notable feature is a pyramid of eight keelsons, which gave the vessel great longitudinal strength. These timbers prevented the ends of the schooner from sagging when she carried heavy cargoes. Some debris has gathered along the northeast side of Section A, which seems to be the most exposed to wave action. The southwest side is better protected and therefore better preserved. Sections B1 and B2: These sections are remnants of the upper hull. They include bulwark stanchions topped with rail caps, deck clamps, lead-lined scuppers for draining water off the deck, and chain plates that held the deadeyes for a mast backstay or shroud . The two pieces lie near each other in approximately 18 feet of water and are similar in appearance. The northernmost portion rests on a rocky bottom and is partly covered by sand, while the other segment rests on a sandy bottom. Section C1: This section is the centerboard, a slab of joined planks approximately 20 by 8.5 feet. It can be identified by its pivot hole, slightly beveled lower edge, and fastening holes for a lifting ring strap. Section C2: Slightly overlapping the centerboard is a 33.5-foot segment of the hull with two logs nailed to the underside. These appear to be a hasty patch nailed over a puncture from the grounding, perhaps by the crew of the tug that attempted to save the Fleetwing . This section is lying in 15 feet of water, immediately north of the first drop-off shelf, and is the closest section to the public boat landing at Garrett Bay. The bottom is somewhat silty, with sand and scattered rock. Section D: This section is the largest of the outlying pieces and is the farthest from shore. It was probably dragged from the main portion of the wreckage by a retreating ice pack. The north end lies in 25 feet of water, and the south end in 24 feet. It is a large part of the vessel's starboard side and bow, and is 94 feet 3 inches in length. It is resting on a rocky bottom mixed with patches of clay. Notable features are a hanging knee , deck clamps, and a chainplate.
