Shipwrecks of the Delmarva shows the location of more than 2,400 wrecks from the waters off the Delaware coast to the waters of the Chesapeake Bay, displayed atop beautiful bathymetric and coastal detail. Each wreck site is symbolized to define the class, type, and name of vessel accompanied by their dates of sinking. Locations of lifesaving stations, lighthouses and lightships, along with navigational beacons are accurately marked. Bathymetric and coastal features are clearly labeled, accompanied by inset maps, captions, and drawings used to highlight unique historical events such as the sinking of the U.S.S. Cumberland, the German U-Boat offensives, and the ghost fleet of Mallows Bay ¾ the largest assemblage of wooden ships in the Western Hemisphere. Wrecks featured on this map span from the mid-1600s galleons to 20th-century naval ships, those lost in military conflict, foul weather, bloody mutinies, pirate raids, human error, treacherous shoals, and a myriad of other events. 28″ x 35″
Finishing Option Descriptions
Most wall maps are offered in a variety of finishing options. If you need a map that’s ready to hang on the wall, we can frame or martin mount your map to save you time and money. Here are the details, contact us with questions.
Paper finishing is the most economical option. Most maps are printed on premium 36lb paper. Waterproof paper is also available for functional maps that may be used outdoors.

Sawtooth hardware is fixed to the back of the top rail, so it’s ready to hang. Use stickers or wet-erase markers on your map.
