One of my Favorite Dive Sites, Aeolus 08/30/2021

The Aeolus is a 426 foot long Cable Repair Ship/Attack Cargo Ship sank in 1988 as a part of North Carolinas artificial reef program. She lies in 110 feet of water. In 1996 with the arrival of Hurricane Fran, in an amazing testimony of the power of wind and ocean, the storm took the 446 ft ship which had been sitting in intact, in over 100 feet of water and buried her 20+ feet into the sand and started rocking it in the swell. The rocking continued until the entire ship had been torn into 3 major pieces and turned right side up and 90 degrees to where it previously lay.
