59 POUNDER

This unidentified  wood wreck sits in 110feet of water 17 miles out of Fire Island Inlet. The wreck was found by Captain Jay Porter the wreck was apparently named for the weight of a large cod fish caught on the site. The wrecks wooden ribs only protrude a foot or so out of the sand but divers report that the site is excellent for catching large lobsters. A few years ago Captain Billy (Bubbles) DeMarigny found the ships bell. Unfortunately no name was on it.
