The crater seems to have been caused by a jet airliner from Horizon Airlines crashing near the shore. A ring of elevated shacks surrounds a highly irradiated platform, centered on what seems to be the source of the radiation - one of the airplane's engines. The location is filled with Children of Atom, wielding radiation weapons. The east shack contains a booby-trapped steamer trunk and a terminal controlling the turrets.
- Wasteland Survival Guide issue #2 can be found on the lower level of the shack to the west and a bit north. It is on the table with a lantern and caps stash.
- Four live nuke mines are planted around the outside edge of the crater.
- Bottle message 1 - trapped for days is located behind the crater house, slightly east-northeast on the shore. Look for some barrels going from the crater house to Salem all the way from the shore. It's on the beach between the barrels and a log. Taking the bottle creates a miscellaneous objective on the water surface, swim past the big white and red boat and the wrecked plane. Dive down until you find a big sewer/pipe and you will see the flipped boat. Looting the steamer trunk inside completes the objective.
The crater house only appears in Fallout 4.
