    Default Identification Of The "south Jack Wreck" - Former Yacht Of Kaiser Wilhelm II

    The Association of Underwater Explorers (AUE) has tentatively identified the "South Jack Wreck" as the luxury yacht NOHAB, formerly Kaiser Wilhelm's LENSAHN, which was built in Germany in 1901. The 143-foot long Lensahn hosted world leaders and other dignitaries including the Czar of Russia, King George of England, and President Theodore Roosevelt.

    Information on the identification can be found in the following announcement:

    More information on this historical identification will be posted on the AUE website in the near future...

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Congratulations Mike!

    Very cool. I have dove that wreck several times and always wondered what it was. It must have been an awesome place to spear back in the 40's,50's,60's, and 70's.

    Thanks for posting Mike.
    Always wondered what that thing was. Ive taken, and seen, some incredible fish on that wreck.
    The preceding post is simply one man's opinion, but since I am the one man in this case, it is absolutely correct.
