“The wreck lies in two sections. The bow grounded after the attack
and now lies in 60 ft. of water 5 miles SE of Barnegat Light. … Divers
have recovered china, gravy boats, cups, thermometers, .50 caliber bullets
and several portholes here. Divers should be aware that live hedgehog bombs
dropped from blimps during the war are occasionally found at this site.”

“… The stern section drifted about ten miles before settling
in deeper water of 90 feet, 13 miles from Barnegat Inlet.”
