The Utwa Harbor Wreck Site: a Shipwreck Evaluation and Management Report
At the request of the Chief of Utwa, Kan Isiah, the Trust Territory State Historic Preservation Office is considering options for managing the shipwreck site located in Utwa Harbor, Kosrae. This ship, presumed to be the Leonora, is one of the more significant historic properties located on Kosrae. While anchored in Utwa Harbor in 1874, a storm blew up and sank and the Leonora before Captain Hayes was able to move her to a safer anchorage. Descendants of Hayes and other crew members have survived to this day and some currently reside on the island of Kosrae.
This report is composed of primary text written by the Submerged Cultural Resources Unit, a site map, a series of photos taken by the team on site and an appended copy of a report Dr. Ehrlich which is the historical background component of this shipwreck evaluation effort. Dr. Ehrlich's contribution is designated "preliminary" and there may be a finalized version available in the future.
