Come and be awed by Captain Bill Palmer, who specializes in Wreck Diving, Shark Cages, Monster Fishing, and Videography!
An authority on underwater wrecks, Captain Palmer has videotaped dozens of submarines, u-boats, and sunken vessels that have been lost in East Coast waters. His recently-published book, “The Last Battle of the Atlantic” describes the sinking of the last German submarine defeated in World War II. She was sunk with all hands just minutes before World War II ended. The once mighty hunter, feared by all who put to sea, now lies in 130 feet of water off the coast of Block Island, Rhode Island, her grave marked only by a circle on the nautical charts – “DANGER Unexploded Depth Charges, May 1945.”
In addition to showing us a video made about the subject of his book, Captain Palmer will talk of other wrecks in or near Long Island Sound, and regale us with many yarns garnered is his long career at sea. This is going to be a program meeting NOT to be missed!!
