Phu Maru

Local Name:

Phu Maru


Depth is approximately 50 feet.


We (Phil Phu and myself) found this wreck by anchoring on GBR Coral head and swimming out, so it is certainly in range from there.

This wreck appears to be a Japanese type "Super-A" landing craft. It was found on 1/28/2006 by Phil Phu and myself while on a weck hunt from the GBR Coral head.

The wreck is not too exciting. To the best of my knowledge this is the second LCM of this type that has been found here at Kwajalein. I'm sure that there are more. Who's going to find the next one?
