Distance From: Freeport 9 nm
 

"The Vancouver Liberty Ship Reef is composed of one ship, the George Vancouver. Construction of this ship was completed on July 22, 1942. She brought supplies to Suez for the Battle of El Alamein, where the Allies began to push the Germans from North Africa. From 1942-45, the Vancouver traveled to ports in the U.S., New Zealand, Egypt, South Africa, Australia and other countries. In 1943, two crew members were lost overboard in heavy seas. During the same year the stress of everyday life caused two other personnel to jump overboard, where they were rescued by another ship. During deployment to the Freeport Liberty Ship Reef site in 1976, the Vancouver sank during a storm and settled to the bottom of the Gulf at its present position." - https://tpwd.texas.gov/publications/pwdpubs/media/pwd_br_v3400_0423e.pdf
