What ship was sunk in Oakland Beach R. I.? It wasn"t really a ship. If you stood in Gus's parking lot and looked out about 100 feet into the water south, there were the remains of a coal barge. About a dozen ribs and some planking. It was an unsightly mess. I don't know if it was cleaned up or if some hurricane did the job of getting rid of it. John Plante, Monticello, Maine
The Speedwell, which was supposed to be the sister ship to the Mayflower, was sold because a problem with leakage was causing the ship to take on water. The ship was repaired by the new owners and made several successful voyages to the Colonies and back. There is no mention of the ship after its last voyage in 1751.
On May 7, 1915, a British passenger ship carrying 128 Americans and 4200 cases of ammunition was sunk by a German U-boat. American lives were lost. This incident infuriated many Americans who now called for war. President Wilson sent a pair of notes to Germany, asking for reparitions and a promise that passenger ships would not be sunk. In February 1916, Germany apologized. THE Lusitania
blah blah blah blah!!!!!
They weren't sure what was out there. There was a belief that Islands were like giant magnets and pulled the nails from ships sinking them. When ships sunk there were no survivors and the people at home had to come up with reasons why they didn't return. So, going to sea was dangerous and it was. Imagine getting on a small ship the size of a basketball court and having no maps, no real control and believing that sea monsters will eat you.
