The Kingbay450 Lobster Boat is a sophisticated yacht that is inspired by classics such as Riva and the US Lobster boats used by the East Coast Gentry.HIGHLIGHT1. IMPORTANT: The Company offers the details of this vessel in good faith but cannot guarantee or warrant the accuracy of this information nor warrant the condition of the vessel. We arrive at our base of operations - the Hatteras Marlin Motel - located in the center of Hatteras Village and in easy walking distance of everything - shopping, a grocery store, post office, playground, library and restaurants (except the marina!). In spite of a dismal forecast we head south to the tanker Dixie Arrow which was torpedoed on March 26, 1942 by the U-71. After being torpedoed the Dixie Arrow remained afloat throughout the day, filling the sky with inky black clouds of smoke and soot that were visible for miles around.
In Ocracoke we board another ferry for a two hour and fifteen minute trip to the Cedar Island Ferry Terminal. Sunday dawns a beautiful day with a bright blue sky and expectations for a great day of diving. We head south to the Papoose (actually the WE Hutton) - a tanker which was torpedoed by the U-24 on March 18, 1942.
In search of better conditions we head north to the gunboat Schurz a commandeered German vessel which sunk in a collision with the SS Flroida on June 21, 1918.
In search of better visibility we head east to the bow section of the Tamaulipas - a tanker which was torpedoed by the U-552 on April 10, 1942.
For a second dive we head west to the freighter Caribesea which was torpedoed by the U-158 on March 11, 1942.
Based on our success with the Tamaulipas yesterday we head east again to the stern section. For a second dive we head west to the tanker Atlas which was torpedoed by the U-552 on April 9, 1942 - the day before sinking the Tamaulipas. After yesterdays adventure we try heading south again to the wreck of the tanker Papoose (actually the WE Hutton). For a second dive we head north to the artificial reef Spar which was a Coast Guard icebreaker.


The name Lobster Wreck comes from the large number of crustaceans typically found at this and neighboring sights. The group gathers with the Captain and mate for the traditional group picture before we begin the 650 mile trek back to Connecticut. A buyer should instruct their agents, or their surveyors, to investigate such details as the buyer desires validated. Leaving Connecticut midday on a Monday provides a more pleasant driving experience than the ususal weekend departures. A green, 47-foot-long creature of the deep called the Alligator — an engineering marvel of the Civil War that helped usher in a new era in naval warfare. Even though the distance is only about 75 miles as the crow flies the process is more complex. Reports on the days diving activities are not promising - two trips had to be aborted because of excessive currents. We arrive at the boat to be greeted by 17 year old mate Mark Nussbaum and Captain Jerry Smith. Although surface conditions are perfect (blue 78 degree water) we descend to the wreck to find 72 degree water with 15 to 20 foot visbility.
Although surface conditions are even more perfect we descend to the wreck to find a meager 10 feet of visibility. We once again run into a shower and descend to the wreck with a bottom temperature of 72 degrees and visibility of only 10 feet.
We jump into the 78 degree water and descend to the bottom where the temperature is 74 degrees and visibility runs about 40 feet a far cry from previous days. As we descent the blue 78 degree water at the surface becomes green 70 degree water at the bottom.
Seas are considerably rougher than yesterday and when we jump into the 78 degree water and descend to the bottom where the temperature is 72 degrees and visibility is a very dark 10 feet.
Reports of dark green water at the bottom and 5 to 10 foot visibility are enough to persuade me to sit this one out.


Although the Gulf Stream appears to have moved in - we actually see some sargassum weed floating on the surface - visibility and temperature drop dramarically below 70 feet.
The wreck was recently identified as the Porta Allegra - a steam dredge with a 20 inch cutter built around 1908.
The main relief on the 175 foot long wreck is four boilers, a large steam engine and the cutter.
Here we see a large spiny lobster recovered by Nick, Jim D and Jim G posing for a final picture before a trip to the grill on the deck.
As the saying goes: there are old divers and there are bold divers - but there are no old bold divers! A secret weapon that captured the attention of a president and can claim a place in history as the U.S. After this we drive for another hour to actually get to Morehead City - our final destination. Nonetheless we jump into the 78 degree water and descend to the bottom where the temperature is 74 degrees and visibility runs about 20 feet. Sightseeing plans are brought to an abrupt halt by the arrival of thunderstorms at 10:00 AM.
Maybe we'll get in some sightseeing at the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in between the thunderstorms!
In April 1863, while being towed south to take part in the attack on Charleston harbor, the Union sub was caught in a fierce storm and cut loose off Cape Hatteras.
