So pretty much the Bermuda Triangle is one big ocean fart.

OR, like in previous comments, the ships hit the sandbar and/or the other stranded ships and because they could not move and/or were taking on water the crew scuttled the ship (or ships depending on which order or time frame these occurred) and just simply left them for the sea to claim, which by the way the sea seems to be doing a reasonably good job at this.

heres how this happened.
its a ******* sandbar, what, did you think the boats sprouted legs?
dumbass

When you hear the phrase "this is a little science explanation for this.", you know it's ******** .

I saw this last night in newest uploads.  How did something this wrong get so many thumbs?  Don't get me wrong, it's a cool picture, but the description tickles my 						**********************					 bone.  It doesn't like bein tickled.  Oh well.  Upon closer investigation of the comments it seems plenty of people know it's wrong.  One of my life goals is to scuba into a shipwreck shoal like this one, so I thumbed it up anyway.

Ha. You guys are right, I was misinformed.
This is indeed the Tangalooma Wrecks located in Moreton Bay off the coast of Australia. They were put there on purpose has a way to break waves and also as a make-shift reef.
However, if you're interested in shipwrecks, click the "ocean" layer on Google Earth and click "Shipwrecks." From there, you can see all the shipwrecks that have occurred all around the world dating back to the 1600s.
Sorry.

it looks like all but the first one sank when they ran into the sunken ships

after closely analyzing this picture, I have reached a very reliable conclusion as to why these ships have sunk   
   
   
they hit the sand bar   
they couldn't move   
they buried themselves   
mystery solved

Mythbusters tested the methane theory, and even a small boat would not be brought down by bubbles.

fart!

dumbass if the water was more dense the bouyant force would increase making the ship float better if anything. but bubbles of gas would decrease the waters density which would decrease the bouyant force THEN make the ship sink
#161 - pebar (01/01/2013) [-]
bubbles of gas making water less dense?
didn't mythbusters do something like this?

Actually the Curiosity series on Discovery proved that the methane that is released isnt possible to sink a sailboat unless it has literally one or two entire pallets of bricks or some type of stone (Can't remember the exact details) and even then it still sunk very slowly.

Quit being a misinforming fag OP.

It's not in Bermuda. It's off the shore of the island Tangalooma in Australia. Awesome place for snorkeling. Also great place to see dolphins. It was a former whaling island, and Scooby Doo on Spooky Island was filmed there. There's also some nice dunes that you can go sledding on. Very nice place for a vaction.

OP SHOULD SUCK THE GIRTHIEST, GRIMIEST PART OF MY COCK.

Tangalooma Wrecks @ Moreton Bay, Queensland, Australia
Fifteen vessels have been deliberately sunk on the landward side of Moreton Island to form a breakwall for small boats and a wreck dive and snorkel site. The Tangalooma Wrecks provide good diving in depths from 2-10m. Even in this shallow water, the wrecks attract an amazing amount of marine life, including wobbegongs, trevally, kingfish, yellowtail and lots of tropical fish.
