What is MAST?
MAST, the Maritime Archaeological Survey Team is a nonprofit avocational group dedicated to the documentation of Ohio's underwater historic resources. Formed in March of 2000, MAST is composed of volunteer individuals who support and participate in research, documentation, underwater archaeological surveys, and educational workshops.
MAST's ongoing commitment to education includes training new members on skills and techniques used for shipwrecks research, measuring, mapping and plotting. In addition, MAST works to educate our community in our historic underwater resources.
MAST's shipwreck surveys have resulted in the several technical reports for shipwrecks such as the Adventure, the Hanna, and the F.H.Prince. Additionally, these shipwrecks have been registered as official archaeological sites with the State of Ohio. MAST has also worked to produce underwater slates for the sites surveyed.
