Shipwreck Cove

By Kevlar
Another (probably the final one) of my Shipwreck Cove pictures.

Found a bit of history about this shipwreck today - this ship was 'SS Three Stars' and some info below...

Three Stars SS was a 1,791 tons Greek vessel built in 1943 by Walterr Butler Shipbuilders Inc, Superior, Wisconsin, USA for the Ministry of War Transport as the GURDEN GATES.

During her life she had many owners and was renamed many times. 1949 BALTIC QUEEN 1950 CESARE CORSINI 1953 ARNO 1964 IRIDA 1965 O KALOS SAMARITIS 1965 THREE STARS.

On the 17th February 1967 she caught fire and was beached at Episkopi Bay and declared a total loss.

....it has eroded a lot in the short time I have known it - this is part of the superstructure, with the hull being submerged about 100 meters or so to the south of the bay.

Thanks for looking and for all comments.
