Got my brother and one of his buddies on the boat this morning to dive the Avalon Shipwreck off of Palos Verdes. This is a 269 foot boat was once owned by William Wrigley and transported passengers to Catalina Island in 1920. During the second World War she was requisitioned by the Navy and then returned to her owners in 1951 when she was retired. It has been said that she was used to help the struggling Dominator Ship get off the rocks at Lunada Bay point but obviously was not successful. In 1964 buffeted by a storm she sank right off the Palos Verdes coastline in 70 feet of water.
