stepping stones of maritime history

History

This is a late 19th or early 20th century wreck of an - as yet - unidentified vessel, colloquially referred to as "Steinsegler" (stone-sailer) due to its stone ballast.

Description

A notable freature are the massive frames.

Length65.6 feet (20 m)

Status

The hull has collapsed under the stone ballast, while remaining parts are either exposed by scouring or covered by new sediments.

Due to its shallow depth of 2,5-4 metres, this is a popular site for recreational wreck divers.
