NJ, NY Offshore Historic Shipwrecks Survey

PROJECT UPDATE: This fundraiser is now completed and donations are no longer being accepted.  Thanks to everyone who made this project a success!

51 wreck sites (list below) were imaged between June 19 and July 5, 2020, far more than originally planned (30), thanks to favorable offshore weather conditions.  Sponsors that contributed at least $50 received confirmed GPS coordinates for these sites, and those who contributed $150+ received a complimentary print of the image of their choosing.

All images are freely available to the public through our Google Maps chart (https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1dMRBuqZSxv1ULdiPi76ZQCiHB0OkW7NV), as well as updates posted through our Facebook page ("Eastern Search & Survey").
