YDT 14

YDT 14 is number 4 on our trip threw the Panhandle wreck trail. She was sunk along with her sister ship YDT 15 in order to create artificial reefs. They were built in Pennsylvania 1942. During 14’s navy service she toured the South Atlantic and the Caribbean. She also served in San Juan, Norfolk, Virginia and Key West. In March 1974 both ships were re-designated as dive tenders. Over the years YDT 15 has been swallowed by the gulf due to storms, but her upper deck is still visible. YDT 14 is still there and is a great dive for the more adventurous. The upper structure sits in around 65 ft of water and is home to resident barracudas. The bottom of the ship sits in 90 ft of water. She is 132.5 ft long and the beam is 30 ft. 30º 05.33º n 087º 09.640w.
