Gosei Maru 

             Truk Lagoon, FSM           



The Gosei Maru was built in 1937as a medium coastal freighter for the Koun Kisen Line. Her lines are unconventional, but were adopted as the Standard D Freighter, built in quantity during the war.  The Japanese Navy took control of her and utilized her as a supply ship for Sixth Fleet submarines. She carried torpedoes and depth charges.

During the "Hailstone" attack, Gosei Maru was attacked by aircraft from the light carrier Monterey and sunk by a torpedo. She now lies on a slope with her stern at 8 fsw and her bow in 100 fsw.
