Other shipwrecks that have fascinated me

The Alvin Clark, or why we don't raise Great Lakes shipwrecks anymore.

The Daniel J. Morrell, or the boat whose sundered stern chased its fleeing sailors "like a great wounded beast with its head shot off."

The Lady Elgin, or why ships must carry running lights.

The General Slocum, or why you should not wire your lifeboats in place. (This was also, prior to 9/11, the worst disaster in New York City's history).

SS Normandie, or "Hey, France! Sorry about your boat!"

SS America, or the time-lapse destruction of an American icon.
