I see there was a show about PT-109 on the History Channel a while back, but I missed it. Did they find her and how much was left? Is it worth a trip?

That would be a heck of a dive. It's in 1200' of water....

And it was a wood boat so I doubt there's much left.

Actually it was there. They couldn't make a positive ID, but it was in the right place. All they found was a torpedo tube. Everything else was buried by the mud bottom.

I don't think its legal to dive it any way, When Robert Ballard found it the US Navy said it was off limits because its a war grave
