The Margaret Shipwreck  New York and New Jersey's (Wreck Valley)
Historical and current New York and New Jersey Shipwreck Information and images for scuba divers and fisherman.

The Margaret is an unknown shipwreck, said to be that of a tug boat. She sits only one mile south of Deb's Inlet in 40 feet of water.

In 1985, when I dove this wreck, visibility was so bad that I couldn't even see what my hand was touching. I did feel a lot of steel cable draped over what appeared to be a hand railing. Because of her location, which is so close to the mouth of Deb's Inlet, a strong current, which kicks up sediment and reduces visibility is usually present making the wreck inaccessible, or at least undesirable for divers. I have, however, seen many charter fishing boats anchored over the Margaret and have heard that if you don't mind losing some lead sinkers, fishing for black fish on the Margaret can be quite productive.
