"The U-352 was a German submarine that was used during the notorious U-boat attacks during WWII along the NC Coast. On May 9, 1942 it was sunk by the Coast Guard Cutter 'Icarus.' This site was discovered in 1974 by Olympus owner and Captain, George Purifoy, and several friends. The history behind this site has been televised and featured on the History® Channel, and is one of North Carolina's best known dive sites."

Captain George Purifoy died a couple of years ago. He was only 63. I was fortunate enough to head out with him a few times. I have some great memories and many stories!

Wow, that sub is in great shape to be almost 70 years old. I would have expected it to be rusted through.
