Historical and current New York Shipwreck Information and images for scuba
divers and fisherman.
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
catching large lobsters. A few years ago Captain Billy (Bubbles) DeMarigny found the ships bell. Unfortunately no name was on it.
