This tanker was torpedoed during WWII by U-123. Loss of life was heavy as the oil the ship was carrying quickly caught fire. At 180 feet, this is an advanced dive.

This British warship ran ashore at Will’s Point, near Montauk. Will’s Point has since been renamed as Culloden Point, after the wreck. There are just a few timbers and cannons left of the wreck which are frequently covered by sand.
Condemned to be broken up and sold for scrap, the USS Ohio caught fire and burned in Peconic Bay. Being in such a state to begin with, there is practically nothing left of the wreck. (Barely deserves a record on our database!)
The only US destroyer that sank during the first world war due to an explosion. There has been a lot of speculation over how the explosion happened; whether it was a mine, a torpedo from a u-boat or internal combustion. The boat sits upside down and is rapidly corroding.
