Titanic of the East: Divers Explore Wreck of U.S. Luxury Liner

quote:

It isn't every day that someone hands you an unexploded World War II shell 100 feet (30 meters) underwater from one of the world's great luxury liners. Then again, the wreck of the SS President Coolidge is no ordinary dive.

The former luxury liner-turned-troop carrier sank in shallow, tropical waters during the war after hitting an American mine, thereby embarrassing the U.S. government and providing recreational divers with one of the most spectacular and accessible wrecks in the world off the coast of Vanuatu.
