USS Juneau found
Posted by goldhammer on Wednesday, March 21, 2018 1:56 PM

Just saw a story that Paul Allen's group located the USS Juneau - CL52 - off the Solomons.

Might be a good chance they can locate the Hornet and Wasp since they are in the area.

The correct spelling is Juneau.

As you know, that’s the ship the five Sullivan brothers died on.

GM,

     The Maps of IronBotom Sound are not very specifc on wreck locations.  Juneau was supposed to be at  9° 11′ 10″ S, 159° 53′ 42″ E  but that area east of Savo has quite a few sunken ships, US, IJN and HMAS.  I am curious to know what specific ship was being searched for.  Dr Ballard had already found the De Haven in the same area. 

   I will watch for furher updates.

  Nino.

 The Hornet and Wasp sunk a good distance away. Hornet near the Santa Cruz islands, north of the Solomon chain and Wasp south east of the Solomns nearer to San Cristobal (Makira island).

     I sure hope more sites are located. Very few of the Ships in Savo Sound have been located and there are a lot of wrecks there.
