STEAMSHIP

The Steamship wreck rests in 60 to 70 feet of water two miles west of Ambrose Light Tower. Although she is a big wreck with lots of brass artifacts on her, no one, to the best of my knowledge, has been able to positively identify her. Bill Reddan, a local charter captain, refers to this wreck as Martins Misery; the wreck is known to others as the Eastern Steamship. Frank Litter has researched some of the artifacts recovered from the site. According to his research this could be the wreck of the Daghestan. The Daghestan was built in 1900 in Sunderland England. She was 353 feet long had a 45 foot beam and a 18 foot draft. In 1908 she was outbound with a cargo of grain when she went down.
