2002 Jodrey Photos I

All images on this page 2002 by Christina Young.

The Roy A. Jodrey is a 640-foot long sunken bulk steel freighter in the Thousand Islands region of the St. Lawrence River near Alexandria Bay, New York.  She lies 140 feet (crows nest) to 250 feet under fresh, clear water, having been sunk in 1974 after striking Pullman Shoal.  More on the Jodrey can be found here.  Also see pictures from last year's Jodrey trip here.

The following pictures (all images from video) are from the Mad Dog Expeditions trip to the Jodrey, May 31 - June 2, 2002.

This is Greg Jackson, diving upside down on the Jodrey's bow.  He was on last year's trip, but as you can see has since shed his doubles for a Buddy Inspiration rebreather.  Closed-circuit rebreathers are rapidly appearing all over the east coast of the USA on deep diving trips.
Here's Greg right-side up.  He likes his CCR so much that he named his company after it.  ;-)
A nice lamp on the Jodrey.  Since it lies in fresh water, the wreck is almost completely intact, making for excellent penetrations and great sightseeing.
Jay Tempe, also diving an Inspiration, inspects a nice brass porthole.  Jay crewed for the late northeast diving pioneer George Hoffman on his boat the Sea Lion for years.
Some fallen debris inside the forward superstructure.
This is a heat exchanger in a room inside the bow.
A fallen intercom box inside the same room.
Some heating ducts and pipes, also in the same room.
A hanging lamp.
A nice brass cage lamp on the wall. 
Looking up at the crow's nest on the bow.
The decompression hang following a Jodrey dive is never boring.  These interesting rock formations would be great for rock climbing if they were above water!
