Either of these worth diving?

Where are they? How deep? What's the visib? Do know what ships they are? I would say go for it, but that's just me.

I don't know anything about them, but if I were you, I would DIVE DIVE DIVE! I'd dive a mudhole right now if I could, so a shipwreck is a no-brainer.

Dog, if you get a boat I will dive them with you! As long as it is not outside of rec limits that is...

The top picture is reported to be in 18ft of water off Cape Henry - its shallow, but north of virginia beach right at the mouth of the bay. Likely not good vis - but probably better than higher up in the bay. The second set of side scans are from tower reef. Tower Reef is located 0.6 nautical miles WSW of the Chesapeake Light Tower. Its in about 40-60ft of water. Might be intersting to check any of these out, but the vis in the bay is generally very poor.

Yep, the vis in the bay is pretty bad. I would be interested in trying out either wreck if others are also interested. I do not have a boat, however.

I have a small sailboat, (27') but have a friend with a 44'. Will have to see how long it would take to get to them. Looks like the tug/tower wreck would be the better run.
I will look into it and see what I can come up with.

I know sailboats are slow, but they don't take much fuel!

Cool, when you get them shoot me a PM or post a message here and we can set at date. If I can know about 2 weeks ahead of time that would be great.
