Thanks Scott! The place where I live is actually one of the most ship wreck cluttered areas in Europe, due to that there are over 6,500 islands in our archipelago, and it has been a trade route for ships since before the viking era. Our island is right between Stockholm and Helsinki and on the way to Moscow, so most the ships that went trough the Baltic sea to Russia have passed by here.
They have actually found a wreck here that contained hundreds of old Champagne and beer bottles. The Champagne was auctioned off and broke the world record of being the most expensive Champagne in the world And last summer, some divers found a new wreck with more bottles that they are getting a permit for now to investigate.
The only thing that sucks is that everything you find here that is believed to be older than 150 years old automatically belongs to the government, and anything younger than that has to be handed to the “lost and found” department of the local police station.
So the money from the Champagne that got sold in the auction actually went to the government, not to the divers who found it
But still it is very interesting, and a very good place to live when the Trident is delivered
It seems like you have a lot of cool gadgets, and I bet you get really good images with those? Do you have any images of wrecks that you might share?
I only have a very cheap side scan sonar (Humminbird Helix 5 si), but since I only have a kayak I really can’t drag along those heavy duty scanners
