Wreck of the Cali

The Cali was a freighter built in 1900 and in the 20′s a diesel engine was installed before it was sold to Colombians. Not originally designed for the shaking a giant diesel engine produces, the hull weakened and cracked over time. In the 40′s while carrying a load of 30,000 bags of rice, the hull finally sprung a leak leading to the rice expanding and fracturing the hull offshore from Grand Cayman. The boat was blown in half and scuttled to form the dive site that now is scattered of several hundred meters of undersea terrain.
