The Discovery of the USS Eagle 56 Shipwreck

Thursday January 30, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$7 – $10

In April 1945, as WWII was coming to an end, the US patrol boat mysteriously exploded in Portland’s harbor. Despite surviving crew members’ adamant claims they were torpedoed by a German U-boat, the US Navy declared the tragedy a result of an accidental boiler explosion. The Navy has since corrected their assessment and the shipwreck has recently been discovered. Ryan King, the lead diver and underwater photographer, will share Eagle 56’s story and how his team uncovered the mystery of her location.
