Bartholomew Ledges 3D Model
This model shows the wreck site of an unknown vessel wrecked sometime in the 16th century on the Bartholomew Ledges. The Bartholomew Ledges is a granite reef in St Mary’s Sound .The top of the reef lies less than a metre under water, so its location within a busy shipping channel makes it a hazard to shipping. At least seven ships are known to have struck the reef, most recently in 1997 when the 25,000 tonne cruise liner Albatros ran into the adjacent North Bartholomew Rock. The seabed topography was modeled from multi-beam echo sounder data collected by MSDS marine. The site is covered with a dense growth of tall kelp which hinders location and survey.
