Sweden - 2013, Session 2

ActionQuest Baltic - Hunting Sloop Short Clip

Location: .

We located and investigated the vessel we refer to as The Hunting Sloop (RAA 2:44) with the side scan sonar and then our ROV. At a Depth of 184 meters (just over 600ft) deep is was pretty difficult to hold station with the ship on the surface so then we had to make passes at the wreck and try not to get the ROV umbilical tangled up. The wreck is approximately 20m x 5m, and in the video we move from bow to stern, starting with the anchor and ending with the rudder. Best estimates are the vessel is from the 1800s.
