10th August 1918 off the coast of Malta: Eberhard Weichold, Captain of German submarine SM UC-22 ordered the launch of a torpedo that sealed the fate of French ocean liner SS Polynesien. She was on route from Marseille to Salonica. Powered by a triple expansion steam engine and harnessing the power of the wind with her sails, she could reach speeds of 17.5 knots. The wreck now resides on a sandy bottom at 65 m. She is deep enough to avoid a great deal of storm swells and she has not been subject to major salvage resulting in her being very intact. Listing 45 degrees to port the 152 m long hull is deforming and bending outwards as the weight of the deck pushes down. Her back has broken at mid-ships near the engine room where the torpedo struck, and a large chunk of the hull has split away. 4349 images were captured by Marcus Blatchford and processed with Agisoft Metashape Pro to create the 3d model.
