“Collided with Jesse Billingsley 1944″

with a cargo of coal

“The bottom is clean and sandy, and there is a great deal of
sea life around this wreck. I saw some very large lobsters get taken, skates,
and the biggest Conger Eel I have ever seen inside one of the boilers. Unfortunately,
conditions at this near-shore site are very hit and miss; currents, surge,
and visibility vary considerably.”

“… This wreck is a good spot for lobster hunting.”
