Originally a German vessel, this 338-foot long freighter, is now recognized as the Suloide. It was on March 26, 1943, that this ship found its fatal path while transporting metals to NY. As it was traveling along the coastline, the ship collided with the W.E. Hutton, that had previously been sunk by U-boats a year earlier. The ship traveled around a mile past the Hutton and took its spot in 65 feet of water. The ship is very broken apart and scattered throughout the sand because the US Coast Guard used 20 tons of dynamite to prevent it from become a navigational hazard as the Hutton was. Marine life found here includes spade fish, sheep head, flounder, and sea bass. This site is visited on a Half Day Charter.
