  Japanese shipwreck in Buka Passage (Propeller Shipwreck)
IJN





Sinking History
Sunk into the Buka Passage.

Shipwreck
As of the late 1970s, this shipwreck still had the propeller attached.

Shirley Cook dove the wreck:
"The wreck had a big brass propellor still on it (even after the salvage guys had moved through), Shirley Cook adds "Our guys were trying to work out some way of raising the propellor. They did not and it is still there."
