For those that attended the Shipwreck Symposium last April, we saw a great presentation by Scott Stitt
"In the early part of 1942, the outer banks of North Carolina were a battleground. German U-boats sank so many ships in these waters the area became known as “Torpedo Alley”."
    
Some highlights of the trip - Dan Hickey, from Innerspace, has dove here with Olympus Dive Center, http://www.olympusdiving.com/ - great referral .
