Why is the Lusitania Wreck in such bad condition?
Is it due to the explotion causing her to sink or the fact that she hit the bottom before completely sunk or is it the passing of time that is responsible.

There are many reasons, Eric Sauder, Lusitania researcher extrordinaire would be the best man to tell you - but The British Admiralty using the wreck as target practise wouldn't have done much to help!

Geoff: Thanks for your post!
Could you tell me more about the target practise thing? I haven't heard that before.

As I understand it, the Lusitania's wreck was used as a target for anti-submarine traing during the war. The unexploded depth charges around the wreck make diving around there a chancy proposition.

Cordially,

The wreck of the Laurentic was fine one day, then a storm came, and she was crushed like a tin can the next day...
