USS Darter Wreck from Space

Location of the Wreck of USS Darter
Bombay Shoal
09°27′21.7″North, 116°55′57.3″ East
Latitude 9.4560255, Longitude 116.9325918

Nothing remains of the wreckage anymore, probably scattered by typhoons.  As late as 1998 there was still visible wreckage above the water.

Hugh's hand drawn chart showing the exact spot, traced from a map of the period.
This was how I was able to find it.
