S.S. American Mariner

    This is one of those photos that you have to see in a larger size to get the full effect.

    Went fishing over the 2006 Memorial Day weekend with the family and took the pocket sized Canon Power Shot S330 with me.

    Located about 7 miles east of Point Lookout, Maryland in the Chesapeake Bay is the American Mariner. Commissioned as Liberty Ship at the very beginning of World War II and later became a training vessel for the USCG, the American Mariner was scuttled by the US Navy in 20 feet of water and used as a target practice ship in 1966. This is pretty much how she looks 40 years later still in the water. More can be read about this ship at:
