Interesting Shipwreck I saw while sailing

to Line Islands And Palmyra

Kingman Reef (pronounced /ˈkɪŋmən/) is a largely submerged, uninhabited triangular shaped reef, 9.5 nautical miles (18 km) east-west and 5 nautical miles (9 km) north-south,[1] located in the North Pacific Ocean, roughly half way between the Hawaiian Islands and American Samoa at 623′N 16225′W / 6.383N

What's interesting is that this looks like two boats (bow of one closest, most of the other behind it) while on GoogleEarth, it is one "complete" boat.

Looking at the larger view, it is the midships wave that makes it look that way. Great find!
