Ryan King & Jeff Goodreau: The Discovery of the William H. Machen

In 1942, at the height of World War II, the collier William H. Machen sunk off the New England coast. This past summer a group of New England divers located and explored, the wreck in 300 feet of water 75 years after her sinking.

For over 20 years, Ryan has been diving, teaching, and photographing marine life, caves and wrecks from Canada to the Caribbean. He has a passion for helping others enjoy and appreciate the underwater world.

Jeff's an avid diver, who has been hunting and diving shipwrecks for over 20 years. A certified rebreather and mixed gas diver, Jeff likes exploring cold water wrecks, and has dove many famous wrecks like the U869, Carl D. Bradley, Palmer-Crary, and Gunilda.
