Hirokawa Maru
Located in: Oceania >> Solomon Islands >> Guadalcanal  
The Japanese transport Hirokawa Maru was sunk in 1942, just around the point from the Kinugawa Maru, and is commonly referred to as “Bonegi I”. It was built in 1940 and was originally 479 feet long but the bow is completely shattered. The stern lies at 55 metres and is a little deep for recreational divers. Like “Bonegi II”, the propellers were salvaged in the 1960’s.

Accidental sinking: 01-Nov-1942 Wreck penetration is possible. Technical or decompression diving. More info...
