Hey, she's off: Manhattan, New York; Baltimore, Maryland; Norfolk, Virginia; Miami Beach, Florida; and Southampton, UK. Pick any land bordering the Atlantic Ocean. Out in the North Atlantic, it's just a matter of distance. However, the closest land is Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. The Republic is about 50 miles South.
You didn't get the coordinates you cited from our website. For more details, visit:
So, all-in-all, a New England shipwreck is probably more correct. She's about 6 miles SE of the Doria which is, I guess, predominantly considered a Jersey wreck.
