We're interested in any shipwrecks, plane crashes, Native American sites, submerged wharves and shipyards, or other sites you know of in both coastal and inland waters. Don't worry about filling in every blank if you are uncertain, what you contribute may dovetail with what others know to create a more complete picture of Connecticut's maritime resources.
