BATH — the Maine Maritime museum will hold a lecture “Modern Oceanographic Equipment and the Search for the Schooner Wyoming” 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22, at 243 Washington St.

John Perry Fish led an oceanographic team on a 20-year search for the final resting place of the Bath-built, six-masted schooner Wyoming,which was located in 2003 off the coast of Cape Cod.  The operation encountered sharks, fierce tidal currents and coastal storms.In this presentation, Fish will detail the technology employed in the search for the Wyoming and the latest equipment used in modern ocean searches.

Fish has managed over 350 at-sea search operations for lost submerged objects from 747 aircraft to modern, historic and treasure ships.  His company operations have spanned the globe with search operations performed in Europe, China, Australia and South America.
