Two views of a fishing dory, sunk upright on the bottom of Emerald Bay in Lake Tahoe.  A dozen or so of the dories have been located in various states of preservation.  Tourists used the dories for fishing (note the rectangular bait tank in the center) at a nearby resort.  In the 1950s, the resort was closed and the dories were sunk.
