Salvor

Originally named Turret Chief, the Salvor was built in 1896 in Sunderland, England. She is a 253′ wooden pseudo-whaleback steamer that was converted to a steel bulk freight barge.

She foundered in a storn on Sept. 26, 1930 while being towed by the Fitzgerald. The tow rope broke and the Salvor sunk.

The vessel is in one piece, but sand covers the midsection making it seem that the vessel is in 2 pieces. It is a novice dive.
