R.P. Resor

W-S - 130 Ft

R.P. Resor was carrying 78,729 barrels (12,517 m3 (442,000 cu ft)) of crude oil to be carried to Fall River, Massachusetts. She had a crew of 41 and carried an ensign and eight United States Navy gunners. Only 2 survived when she was torpedoed by the U-578 on Friday February 28, 1942.

The stern section looms over the desintegrating midsection devestated by the torpedo explosions and fire. The bow section is rarely dived and resembles a gigantic parking lot towering to nearly 25 feet above the whie sanded bottom. Visibility is always excellent and lobsters are plentiful!
