T. Charlton Henry Shipwreck

This wreck was discovered by legendary Freeport charter Captain Richie Kessinger. Back in 2007 divers from the charter boat Lockness first explored the then unidentified shipwreck. They found a low lying wood schooner sitting in almost 200 feet of water. For unknown reasons they originally called the wreck the Filthy Whore or the FW wreck. Four years later on Saturday July 2nd 2011 divers Doug Buck and Andy Favata found and recovered the ships Capstain cover. This prized artifact positively identified the wreck as the T. Charlton Henry"  built in 1902 by H.M. Bean Shipyard in Camden Maine. The "T. Charlton Henry" sunk in 1907 after colliding with the British Steamship "Chelston" off Fire Island.
