|In the late 1980's, a Loch Ness boat
skipper called George Edwards was taking part in routine coastguard
exercises on the waters of the Loch when he noticed something
unusual on his ship's sonar.
The sonar recorded a depth of 787 feet, a good 37 feet more than
had been previously recorded in the area. Since that initial discovery,
several other ships have checked the waters in that area of the
Loch and confirmed the presence of what was to become known as
"Edwards Deep", an anomalous rift in the floor of Loch
Despite (or perhaps because of) the press rolling out the usual
"Loch Ness Monster" connections and theories, no detailed
examination of Edwards Deep has taken place - so the reasons behind
this Anomaly in Loch Ness waters has yet to be determined.
