Thanks, Craig.  I was going to post this news, but you beat me to it!  They should ask this guy to present his find with us at the MAHHI symposium next month...

I local diver has posted images of the wreck, making it clear that the initial identification of the "Maui bomber" was incorrect -- it is most likely an early model Curtiss SB2C "Helldiver" (rather than a Douglas SBD "Dauntless").
