 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Interesting sailing vessel lying upright on the bottom. Built in 1856 she sank in 1867 while anchored in the lee of Hope Island while undergoing repairs. Decks have collapsed other than the remains at the bow where an anchor windlass is located with chain leading over the bow to one of two anchors set in the bottom. The centre board casing is intact and upright amidships. The stern has more or less simply vanished with the wreck's hull abruptly ending and a small debris field left. On my last visit, the starboard side had sanded up to within 8 feet or so of the rail which must put enormous pressure on that side of the hull, acting almost like a retaining wall. The Port side being sand free to almost the keel.
