Superior Producer

The Superior Producer is a sunken cargo ship. It sits completely upright in about 100 feet of water off the southern coast of Curacao. Its captain protested that it was over laden and was incapable of sailing. Its owner ordered the ship to make way. Less than 1000 feet from the dock, it sank in a matter of minutes. Guess the captain had a point.

It has been cleaned off (doors welded closed, rough edges filed down, debris removed) and is a popular dive site, visited several times weekly by local dive operations.
