Directly in line with the Mugai Channel just below Berth 137 is a marker titled “Wreck” on what is marked as a mount 7 fathoms deep. This is the wreck of the fleet oiler USS Mississinewa, sunk on 20 Nov 1944 as the first casualty of the Japanese Kaiten piloted torpedo program. The mooring plan initially included Berths, 129, 130, & 131 but these were eliminated from the plan because of the presence this wreck. Mississinewa had been in Berth 131.
