Pearl Harbor is possibly one of the most well-known harbors in the world. There is a rich and important amount of history associated with this area before the Japanese attack. Check out what Kamehameha harvested from it and itʻs original Hawaiian name, or learn about the evidence of the shark god who inhabits itʻs waters. We also touch on the types of ships in Pearl Harbor and some of the sunken ships that still reside in the shallow waters of the harbor.
It Was Named That During The Time Of Kamehameha The Great
During the attack, there were 102 ships stationed at Pearl Harbor of which 69 of them received no damage at all. There were 15 ships that received minor damage and 11 more ships that sustained medium to heavy damage. There were 7 ships sunk at Pearl Harbor but of those, only 3 were a total loss, Arizona, Oklahoma & Utah.
The average depth of the harbor is only 45 feet deep or just over 13 meters. When dropped, a torpedo will drop to a depth of 100 feet before rising so the make an attack successful, they had to add wooden fins to the torpedos and practice for almost a year to learn how to launch attacks on the ships in the harbor.
