USS Moody

California,USA

USS Moody was a Clemosn class destroyer laid down by Bethlehem Shipbuilding Company in Quincy, and was launched in June 1919 for US Navy. She was commissioned in the Pacific Fleet in December that same year, and participated in manouvers in the Pacific and Caribbean until she was taken out of service in June 1930. She was sold to the company Metro Goldwyn Meyer the year after, and deliberately scuttled with dynamite outside San Pedro under filming a scene for the movie Hell Below 21. February 1933. The explosion ripped her hull in two, and the wreck rest today in two separate parts on a depth of 27 to 45 meter San Clemente Island in San Pedro Bay.
