Default Need good GPS numbers for wreck fishing off LI

I sold my old boat along with the Loran C unit and all the numbers in it. I have read all the post concerning converting Loran C to Lat/Lon for GPS and have had little luck in getting accurate numbers out of the conversions. I'm not looking for your secret spots just the wrecks that are known. I just don't want to waist anymore time and fuel in chasing down bad numbers. If anyone out there would be willing to share some good wreck numbers with me or put me onto a published list that are proven accurate I would really be helpful.
Thank you very much.
John

Major,

Just one clification.... Capt Seagull chart #OFGPS18 covers Block Island to Nantucket, The dip through Veatches....

You will need another one for south of LI. But Capt Seagull's is definately the way to go....

Hey Guys,
Thanks for the quick replys. Most times I don't go out past 180' of water on the south side of the Island. I tend to run out of Fire Island inlet and Jones inlet but will make the run to Montauk and Block. I have tried some of the numbers on the charts loaded into my Garmin chartplotter with some numbers being better than others. I'll pick up the Capt Seagull's charts.
Thanks again for the info.

You are incorrect

The Capt Seagul chart has a back side also it shows Montauk NY to Atlantic City NJ. I have the chart on my wall at work

Major,

I stand corrected.

I also have it on my wall at work, but of course I have it hanging on the side that I fish..... the South of the Vineyard side....

I just flipped it over....you are right. South of LI is there.
