I believe this is the same photo referenced in Research Bulletin #15, The Carpenter's Daughter, with the "dot and dash" feature.  Perhaps when the hi resolution scan of the Bevington photo is received the dot and dash can be examined also?

That's correct, although we're quite sure that the "dot and dash" are debris from the shipwreck.  Nessie is too far north to be from the ship.

Agreed, but I couldn't figure out how to put in a link.   :-\

Thanks Marty. Simple enough when it has been explained but not exactly what you'd call intuitive.

Dare I ask how you insert an image?

Ric,

Have you shown this photo “Nessie” to the guy who saw the “wheel of fortune”?  The photo almost looks like a main gear standing upright.

Not much worse than any other markup for a link.

This certainly looks like a landing gear strut, with the tire imbedded in the reef. Makes sense to me that the surf would have ripped the airframe from the strut, and then the strut from the reef, especially if a storm had moved over the island.
Personally, I think that you'll find parts of the Electra just off the reef, and will be able to recover something. This photo matched against the others that you have means that there is an "amomaly" on the reef, north of the shipwreck, and probably not part of the ship. I hope that you find it!!

I see what you're saying. You could be right.  If a wheel dropped into a narrow groove the axle could jam between the sides of the grove. The jammed steel axle could be virtually immovable while wave action against the aircraft would put tremendous stress on gear attach points. 
But this fuzzy image is like a Rohrschach Test.  It's easy to see what we want to see. Let's hope that a hi-res of the original print provides more detail.

Here's a link to the bulletin just to prove that I am teachable.  Hiding in Plain Sight

Marty,
Why are we using this string for the subject of links?
