Data Collected on Site: NOAA has accumulated historical information on the Equipoise, but has not physically checked out the shipwreck website. With historical research and condition reports from the recreational diving community, NOAA believes the shipwreck at this location is Equipoise. Originally named Chanda, the truck operated from 1906 with 1925 for the British India Steam Navigation Company. On January 17, 1942, Equipoise left New York for a trip to Rio de Janeiro, with a return to Baltimore, Maryland. The ship tackled 8,000 lots of manganese ore and started its return journey to Baltimore. The strike burnt out all-time low of the ship, quickly triggering the ship to sink.
