Limited possibilities for survey because of low visibility. It was cold and rainy. Under water the excavation went on and I started checking for the name of the ship. Look inside for more details.
Fifth issue, December 23, 2007
Further investigation of the excavation site and the name of the ship. Both with disappointing results. Look inside for more details.
Sixth issue, December 30, 2007
Very poor visibility, only a few meters. A good opportunity for a close inspection of an intriguing object on the deck on starboard side near the stays opposite the anchor on portside. I cleaned it as good as possible and made several pictures of it. It remains a mystery what it is, but at least it is now well documented. Look inside for more details.
