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

The Thumper was a wood crane barge. She was 40 feet long with a 20 foot beam. On December 8, 1985while under tow, en-route from RI to Westbrook CT the Thumper started to leak. She quickly started to lean then sunk like a rock. She left two crew floating in the near freezing water. Both were rescued and treated for exposure.

Today the wreck of the thumper can be found in 80 feet of water in Fishers Island Sound.
