A 75M / 245FT early vintage steel freighter sank in 1879. The old steamer had departed Savannah, Georgia for Russia with a cargo of cotton. Her voyage was not an easy one; she encountered numerous storms and heavy seas. When a giant wave cracked her hull, causing a massive leak, the captain attempted a run for Bermuda. She never made it. Instead, the unlucky ship ran aground on the reef 8KM / 5MI northwest of the Royal Naval Dockyard. Subsequent storms scattered her remains, but her bow section remains fairly intact. She lies in 4.5-11M / 15-35FT of water with her steam boilers, stern section and propeller still visible.
