Frank Cantelas, left, staff archeologist, East Carolina University and crew aboard the Office of Naval Research (ONR) vessel YP-679, Afloat Lab, retrieve the side scan sonar unit at the end of the day. Using high-tech underwater search and survey tools, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), with support from the ONR, are hunting for the Alligator – the Navy’s first submarine – during the week-long expedition August 24-31, 2004. The expedition, based in Ocracoke, N.C., is searching an area off Cape Hatteras where the Civil War era vessel was lost during a fierce storm in 1863.
