Shipwreck Found off Portsmouth, NH

Seacoast Online: A shipwreck largely forgotten by history was recovered this summer by a team of divers dedicated to telling its story.

Found in 300’ of water, the SS William H. Machen sank on July 7, 1942, off the coast east of New Hampshire and Maine after a collision with cargo freighter Maid of Stirling owned by Stirling Shipping Company.

This past summer, a team of New England divers located and explored the wreck of the Machen, 75 years after she sank.
