    Great stuff Marcel. Would you happen to know the story of a WW2 Dutch (perhaps) submarine that ran aground on a small coral reef, but could not get off and is still there today?

    It was the O 19. The crew was taken off by the USS Cod, which may still be extant in Cleveland, Ohio. Her battle flag shows a martini glass to honor the 3 day party the crew of O 19 threw in their honor. Must have been some party!
