What Lies Beneath Winnipesaukee

Avid diver and history buff Hans Hug, Jr. will present What Lies Beneath Winnipesaukee on Thursday, June 11 at 6:30 PM.  Hug has dived all over Lake Winnipesaukee in search of artifacts, shipwrecks and more. Hell speak about his scuba diving adventures in the Big Lake and the things he has found there. Using old maps, photographs, historical research and high tech side-side-sonar, Hug has discovered many new and interesting things, including dozens of unknown shipwrecks. Hell bring some of the items hes found, as well as underwater photographs and sonar images, and will show a short video of one of the wrecks he located on the bottom of the lake.
