The Spar's final resting place, she is about 20 miles out off the coast of north Carolina in approximately 100 feet down.
She serves now as a habitat for many marine creatures, also and plenty of sharks.

This is a quote from Mike Gerkin
The Wreck of the Spar-403 may be only a modest 180' long and not have as memorable a history as say the aircraft carriers USS Oriskany, and USS Saratoga or even the WWII troop transport ship the SS President Coolidge but her story is a respectable one that deserves attention all the same. Let it not be forgotten that this ship served it's country to the best of it's abilities in war and in peacetime and continues to serve today as a stunning and marvelous dive sight.
The "Cutter With the Most Gold" just keeps on giving.

I would not have this website or the ability to have made it, if it weren't for John Hagerty, he got me started
and I am very grateful for him and his time.
