The side-scan sonar image on page 38 is captioned as LCT-524, but the wreck does not resemble the rectangular shape of an LCT. It is more likely the remains of an LCI. As a former craftmaster and operator of LCTs during nuclear weapon tests at Eniwetok and Bikini in the 1950s, I am quite familiar with those vessels.
