Wrecked ships may show up along the coast…

In an article on Oregon Live, we are reminded that the Winter wind and waves’ fury will quite possibly give us a history lesson in the form of tangible evidence.
The remains of thousands of vessels have disappeared along the coastline.
The reality of the chart is driven home when artifacts and even entire hulls are revealed for us to wonder about the intrepid souls that plied these waters for a living, in turn providing the same for the new residents upon which our current day cities and towns were built.  Almost everything and everyone arrived here via a watery route, in a time when navigation was complicated by the lack of lights and accurate charts for the region.

Last year at this time, the biggest storm in recent memory unveiled the long-lost carronades believed to belong to the wreck of the USS Shark.  Known shipwrecks became more visible as well as long-forgotten skeletons that glimpsed daylight for the first time in decades.  The same process could randomly reveal any number of known or speculated shipwrecks.
Dead Reckoning of the Pacific Graveyard details these wrecks along the southwest Washington and northwest Oregon coast as well as at the mouth of the Columbia River.
