I didn't realize that the Koreans operated a ferry in San Francisco Bay back in the 1880s.

Considering SF Bay, it's a wonder the wrecks aren't stacked three high. Lots of ships got abandoned there during the gold rush.

FTA:
Researchers with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration were looking in May 2013 for another ship that sank near the Golden Gate Bridge in 1952 when they found what they thought was the City of Chester.
They conducted what is called a multibeam sonar survey and over the next nine months sorted through the data. A follow-up look with sidescan sonar found the ship 216 feet beneath the surface, sitting upright in the mud. There was a fatal gash in the ship's port side.

The wreck was found in 1888 by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, the predecessor of NOAA.

So how many farking times have they "found" this wreck?

You can go ahead and return that ticket, it wasn't that edgy or clever.

And how did it get lost again? It's not a bloody packet of peanuts!

They didn't, per chance, to stumble over MH370 while they were at it?

Who names their boat. "City of Chester"? I read it thinking they found some old city underwater.

Well, not a lot in the Bay. Most of the sharks are wee little (scale-wise) squalus types like Spiny Dogfish. There may be the occasional Great White, but not often, and not for long... with the sea lions congregating more in the Bay these days, I wonder if that'll increase the prominence of larger sharks?

They didn't happen to find pieces of a rubber raft, did they?

\might be a bit obscure.

"The Chinese crew of the Oceanic initially was criticized but later praised as heroes " - so the crew of the ship that hit the "City of Chester" were initially criticized but then when they realized there were Chinese on board the sinking ship they were praised as heroes?
