Wreck of USS Tucker, Vanuatu

Site of sinking off Espirtu Santo Island, Vanuatu. August 4, 1942. Sunk by a "friendly mine"
View taken near the ships crew quarters. The wreck was stripped by salvagers in the 1960's
View taken amidships. Originally the ship had a fair amount of stainless steel doors and frames which were removed long ago by the salvagers.
View of one of the two steam turbine engines scattered across the bottom.
