Wooden vessel sunk south of the pier at Gugegwe Island. Likely
sunk on December 4, 1943.
Sank upright in 60' of water. Only the metal
parts of the ship remain, engine, fuel tanks, and hull planking
and basalt. A full case of small arms ammo is nearby. In 1978 four samurai swords were
discovered in the aft, but the blades had rusted away.
