Weeellll, I won't list all the wrecks I've been on, but I will say that my favorite wreck to date is the Samual Mather in Whitefish Bay Michigan. This one is a 246' steamer that sunk in 1891, and she is sitting pretty in 180' of water with two mast standing, rigging in place, and many artifacts to see.

That's it for now -- Winter 2003 -- Grand Truk!!!!!!!!!!!
Too many to list,favorite is the Adolphus Busch ,as thats where I take alot of people on thier first"wreck" dive.My dream is to do the deep wrecks I've fished in northeast Fla.Still to far out for my current boat at 50-60 miles out.
Well, there was a 20' cabin cruiser at the bottom of the quarry in Cerulean kentucky.....
Does the crusher house at the bottom of the quarry count? I got my "wreck experience" dive for AOW inside it?
I saw the rusting hulk of the USS Strength about 250 yards (okay, maybe a little further) off the coast of Panama City, FL.
Maybe not the most impressive list, but I'm looking forward to more....
Where is Morehead City? (NC?) Seems like a good place to get some experience. What kind of depth are those wrecks sitting in?
I was waiting for someone to say I was wrong. However I didn't think it would be you! LoL. You said you read " Deep Descent". In Kevin's book he says the Doria is in an area know for a long time, as the "Bermuda Triangle of the NorthEast". I should have added " Notheast" to my first post.
It's written on the inside cover jacket.
I'd love to dive it. I might be qualified by my 50 th birthday!
I give all of you Tech divers a lot of credit. It's fasinating to read the trip expeditions.
NC is North Carolina. And my tech diver friends say it has some awesome diving. I believe Bob Decker is the man to dive with out there. I can get you his email address if you're interested.
Meanwhile, I've head that there are a plethora of wrecks including at least one U-boat off the coast of NC, that's why I thought his list might have been from there. I'd like to head that way next summer.
BTW, regarding your comment on another thread, my stepfatehr and his buds have dived many of the wrecks in the New York Bight, but they haven't rounded the corner and braved the A.D. yet...... I'm hoping to do some dives up there next year too....
Lastly, "Duca" is my user name, "Molon" is the first word of my tag line...
