Identification of the Steamer Munisla
Published on Aug 5, 2014 By Michael C. Barnette using Bigblue Dive Lights.
Footage from a trip 150 nautical miles offshore to explore an unknown shipwreck resting in 385 feet of water in the Gulf of Mexico off Florida. This was the second trip to the wreck, which resulted in the identification of the site as the steamer MUNISLA.
The MUNISLA was built in 1916 in Michigan and was an one-off Norwegian design freighter. She was lost in the September 1919 Hurricane during a voyage from Mobile, Alabama to Cuba. The entire crew was lost in the sinking.
