Though not newly discovered, the Eccles is new to divers chartering with the Ducks. She is 95 ft in length with a 24 1/2 ft beam and drafted 9 1/2 ft. She sank in about 100ft of water back in 1922 off Timber island. Her story is as interesting as she is so be sure to look her up and find out her history before doing the dive.
