Where She Lies
[Chartlet compiled by Diane C. Day, based on National Oceanic and Atmospheric (NOAA) chart No. 18022 San Diego to San Francisco Bay - 36th Edition corrected through 04/2011.]
She rests at 1,735 fathoms (10,410 feet or 3,173 meters). She is located over 100 miles from San Clemente Island, and 82 miles South of San Nicholas Island.
Life off our coast completely disappears at about 300 feet of water. Since most life relies on photosynthesis, the density of life on the deep bottom is a fraction of what it is on the surface.
The SAVAGE should be in a condition similar to that at the time of her sinking with a good amount of paint still on her, according to Steve Lawson of California Wreck Divers.
What a beautiful sight she still must be. Finally at perfect peace.
