-Article by Unexplained Mysteries Nicely written! My compliments. I remember reading somewhere that there was once a fatal boat accident during some kind of boat race. It appeared the boat collided with something, but there was nothing there that anyone could see. Does anyone know anything about this? Is it a true story or another myth? My Scots friend tells me she has boated on Loch Ness and even slept overnight on it in a houseboat. Me, I'd be too chicken! Loretta

Very good points...though I still believe that there is a "pod" of Pleisiosaurs or even Elasmosaurs that migrate yearly to the Loch, possibly to give birth to young. No underground caves? Sure, just because you say so Contrary to the satellite pictures taken during the 80's, eh?

I've not heard about that, perhaps the boat collided with driftwood or something like that floating in the Loch. though I still believe that there is a "pod" of Pleisiosaurs or even Elasmosaurs that migrate yearly to the Loch, possibly to give birth to young.

How would they get into the Loch ? The only passage is through the Caledonian Canal, which includes a considerable number of Locks that would be very difficult to navigate. Theres no way a group of large animals could get all the way through all of them without being seen. Maybe they disguise themselves as American tourists and take the train. Loretta

Some people will just say anything, reguardless of weather it is actually true, to try and argue their point. Good article. Goes along way to debunking the myth to most people who can grasp it.

My bad. There are no satellite pictures. I have no idea why I typed that "satellite" in there I blame the 50 wpm typing speed and a bit of wine. There are no caves or caverns, though pictures from a book I have here with me called "Into the Unknown" which show a "maze" of ditches beneath the waters. I'll have to dig it up to get the details, though it looked pretty genuine. Some people will just say anything, reguardless of weather it is actually true, to try and argue their point. I'm not the kind to lie or tell half truths, if anything I was misinformed.

Actually, I remember reading somewhere that, in 1989, a coast guard discovered a cave deep underneath the ground, in the loch. I believe the coast guard's name was Edwards, or something like that, although I can't really remember, for sure. If anyone has any more information on this discovery, please, tell me!
