I have seen a more recent photo of this wreck and i sad to say that it has rolled over on it's side and is rapidly collapsing into a rusted heap of junk. the back half of the ship lays in deeper water.

It is a shame. I haven't seen any more recent pictures but I think I will look for some now.

:omg: Sweet! I want to visit that wreck so badly!

By the way, is it me, or does the ship look a little like the Titanic?

Hey Gee,

Your shipwreck is called the American Star. She is resting off of Fuertaventura in the Canary Islands, and this link indicates that the wreck is collapsing. :no: Well, here is the link.

thanx.
it was taken whilst i was holiday in the canary islands. i can't remeber which one exactly i think it was furtenventura.
the ship is called the star (as far as i can remeber) and ran aground in a storm off the coast.
this picture was taken about 4 years ago.
