Quester I is the name of a 45-foot submarine built in 1967 by Jerry Bianco, a shipyard worker in Brooklyn, NY. Made of salvaged metal, Bianco built the submarine in order to raise the wreck of the passenger ship SS Andrea Doria. The submarine was launched unsuccessfully in 1970 when it tipped sideways and became stuck in the muddy banks.[1] The submarine remains in Coney Island Creek.
