Historical and current New York and New England Shipwreck Information and images for scuba divers and fisherman.

The 68 ft steel hulled tug boat Barataria was built in 1937 in El Morro Tx. On September 21,1971 the Barataria was sold to the Sun Marine Company. On November 25, 1971 the tug was en-route from Miami Florida to New England. Storm seas caused the tug to founder off Horton Point. The wreck known to local divers which sits in 135feet of water, has never been positively identified. It could be the Barataria or either of two other tugs which have also sunk in the area. The other possible identities are the Thames or El Morro II.
