The Los Angeles Corral of Westerners

The Los Angeles Corral of Westerners presents a virtual presentation on the discovery of the USCG Cutter NcCullogh off the coast of Point Conception, presented by Robert Schwemmer. 

One hundred years after the USCG Cutter McCulloch sank and disappeared off Point Conception, the U.S. Coast Guard and NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries announced the discovery.  During a joint NOAA and USCG remotely operated vehicle (ROV) shipwreck training mission in 2016, the shipwreck site was confirmed to be the McCulloch.  Robert V. Schwemmer served as NOAA's chief scientist for the mission.  Bob will present the history of the ship, which served both as a U.S. Revenue cutter and later USCG cutter, and the process by which it was eventually found.  He will also share images from the shipwreck site.
