“THE QUEST FOR THE CHAMPLAIN MONSTERS!”- Join Scott Mardis and co-host Julie Rench as they welcome Scott’s long time friend and collaborator William Dranginis to discuss their work at Lake Champlain over the last 9 years and their plans for the future. What evidence is there that there just may be a prehistoric creature living in Lake Champlain? Find out on this episode of “The Haunted Sea”!
Scott Mardis has been an active field investigator of the Lake Champlain “Monster” since 1992. He is a former sustaining member of the defunct International Society of Cryptozoology and a former volunteer worker in the Vertebrate Paleontology Dept. of the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences (1990-1992). He co-authored a scientific abstract about the Lake Champlain hydrophone sounds for the Acoustical Society of America in 2010. He currently lives in Bradenton, Florida.
For a quarter of a century, William Dranginis has been at the forefront of inventing and testing surveillance equipment to find Bigfoot in Virginia and West Virginia, and Lake Monsters in Vermont. His work with the FBI and other government agencies dovetails his pursuit to uncover the mysteries of Cryptozoology and beyond.
On December 1st, 2016, William traveled to the Northern New Jersey office of the Attorney in charge of the 2005 Lake Champlain Peter Bodette video of Champ. After reviewing the complete footage William believes 100% that the combined evidence in the video points to the creature being a type of relic Plesiosaur. In the summer of 2017, William self financed his Lake Champlain expedition and brought his 31 foot vessel so more time could be spent on the water, that included many overnights on the Lake as well!
