Taiyo - Solomon Islands

On its maiden voyage, this 300-foot fishing boat ran aground after striking a coral reef in Nono Lagoon, Solomon Islands. An attempt to salvage the ship went awry, and caused the Taiyo to sink vertically over the reef edge. Its bow sits just a few feet below the lagoon’s surface, and the ship remains fully intact.
