Developed by renowned marine archeologist and accomplished author Don Shomette, and designed by award-winning cartographer Robert Pratt, Shipwrecks of the DelMarVa is a stunning cartographic piece based on years of research and expert visual design. It shows the location of over 2,400 wrecks from the waters off the Delaware coast to the waters of the Chesapeake Bay, displayed atop beautiful bathymetric and coastal detail.
Each wreck site is symbolized to define the class, type, and name of vessel accompanied by their dates of sinking. Locations of lifesaving stations, lighthouses and lightships, along with navigational beacons are accurately marked. Bathymetric and coastal features are clearly labeled, accompanied by several inset maps, captions, and drawings used to highlight unique historical events such as the sinking of the U.S.S. Cumberland, the German U-Boat offensives, and the ghost fleet of Mallows Baythe largest assemblage of wooden ships in the Western Hemisphere. Wrecks featured on this map span from mid-1600s galleons to 20th century naval ships, including those lost in military conflict, foul weather, bloody mutinies, pirate raids, human error, treacherous shoals, and a myriad of other events.
