Default 1850 "Plumas" layout?

This weekend we will be visiting the 1854 ship wreck of the riverboat “Plumas” on the upper Sacramento River in California. We will be taking basic measurements and will have a long probe to try and find something definitive. The ship wreck is below the water table and the wood has rotted and collapsed creating a ship shaped sink hole.

This was a stern wheeler of about 50 tons and I am asking this group for some help on just were to probe to find something large, solid and would survive 160 years in water and mud. like maybe cast iron.

Thanks in advance, Dave Freeman
