The Joseph L. Meek is a 480 foot long liberty ship launched on November 16, 1942 by the Oregon War Industries Building Company. Liberty ships were produced en mass during World War II when they were necessary to transport loads of troops to the war in Europe. This twenty feet high wreck was sunk by the Department of Commerce in November 1976 and is located at only eight miles from Pensacola Bay. Today she rests straight up on the ocean floor with a hull which is still intact. She is also one of the favourite dive sites for spear fishermen in search of flounder, snapper and jacks on its muddy bottom.
