Alexander Ramesy

(the Lib Ship)

The Alexander Ramsey is a liberty ship that was sunk as part of the artificial reef program in 1984. It is about 2.5 miles from Masonboro inlet in 45 ft of water. There are very few divers around Wilmington that are not familiar with the Lib Ship. Due to it's close proximity to shore it is visited frequently by divers. It is a popular place to conduct open water checkout dives. This has been the first dive for thousands of divers over the past 20 years. It has at least 4 other small wrecks in it's proximity which helps attract a lot of marine life. Recently there has been at least two resident sand tiger sharks that make it their year round home.
