This Emily was likely sunk while moored several hundred yards off southwest of Dublon Seaplane Base on Dublon
Island at Truk Lagoon.
This Emily has straight propeller blades indicating it was likely sunk at its moorings. This flying boat is deteriorating rapidly and is in poor condition. The body of the plane
is upside down and the nose and tail
have separated from the plane. The instrument panel and guy wires are
strewn on the sea floor and debris block entrance into the fuselage.
