Wreck dive the C-One or Christina is a 105 foot long US Navy steel tug, originally built in 1940. She served most of its time in the Caribbean and has as final destination Jacksonville, where she waited for being repaired. A tugboat named Captain Donald sank at Fort Pierce when it tried to tow the wreck to its planned position on October 27, 1990. At the 8th of November 1990 it was the Department of Environmental Resources who succeeded in scuttling the wreck at its present location.
She lies on a sandy bottom and rises 25 feet from the ocean floor. She lists slightly to its starboard side at 45 degrees. Portholes, its diesel-electric engine and its door hatches were removed, creating a wreck with limited options for wreck exploration fanatics. Currents have created a hole up to eighty foot deep in the center of the wreck. Of its most common marine life it are probably the schools of barracuda's that often visit this wreck especially in winter.
