The Association of Underwater Explorers (AUE), founded in 1996 by Michael Barnette, is a group of avid shipwreck explorers working to expand the base of knowledge on submerged cultural resources.  AUE is not a dive club.  Over the years, we have explored numerous notable shipwrecks, including the U.S.S. MonitorAndrea DoriaU.S.S. Wilkes BarreQueen of Nassau (formerly the C.G.S. Canada), U.S.S. Virginia, and the H.M.H.S. Britannic.
