    Can you prove it?

    Steeefan & I both spent a while looking at it closely, measuring things.. if you look at the nose, it curves to the right, and the back looks far too natural.. if you have evidence, like a website talking about it we will be happy to change it.. but the owner uploaded it with "shipwreck or island" as the title, so we had to make our own call...

    Default Answer: neither shipwreck nor island...

    Apparently, it's a sunken train locomotive on Harbour Island, Bahamas !!

    "A variety of shipwrecks like along a barrier reef called The Devil's Backbone. Perhaps the most unusual shipwreck is the remains of a steam locomotive, lying in 15 feet of water in the middle of The Devil's Backbone. The train was the main cargo of a wooden barge, which sank during a storm in 1865, bound for Havana, Cuba."

    "Part of a Union train captured by the Confederacy and sold to a Cuban sugar plantation which plunged from a barge in 1865 is what you will find in just 20 feet of water. View the few remains of this locomotive which struck the Devil's Backbone on its way to Havana."

    Yeah, locomotive was my first idea too, but I thought, that's too easy. Must be more strange...

    Ok this is an old file, but I must correct the answer.

    This is 'Goulding Cay'. A small 10 acres big island.
