Theres a lot here, but why from The Miami Herald? ...


Although Cape Hatteras has the reputation for being the Graveyard of the Atlantic, Veasey writes, ``The truer graveyard of the Atlantic is New Jersey's coast. More shipwrecks have been documented here than at Cape Hatteras, according to shipwreck data in the Life-Saving Service's annual reports for the 25 years between 1887 and 1911. During that period, New Jersey recorded 1,257 shipwrecks, while North Carolina had 916.''
