"Hall Wreck" inspection (BOB0042), 30 March 2018
BOB0042 (the “Hall Shipwreck”). Inspected by N. Richards and P. Delano (30 March 2018). Thanks to Jerry and Marty Slayton (Cavalier Surf Shop), Roberta Thuman and Cliff Ogburn (Town of Nags Head), and Nathan Henry and Billy Ray Morris (NC Underwater Archaeology Branch).
The wreckage is 39.2’ long and 14.5’ wide. The wreckage appears to be the top of a side of a ship, representing part of the gunwale/bulwark. The frames are doubled. Each individual frame in a pair is 12” sided and > 15” molded. Each frameset is 24-25” sided. The space between frames is 6-7”. The frames are extensively treenailed.
There are six extant framesets, one is missing at the S end (the mortise remains), and at least five are missing at the N end. Between the frames outer hull planking can be seen, with more hull planking noted at the N end of the wreckage. Some external hull planks are 12” wide.
