Shipwreck Russia-2Your model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Russia had a long career with a number of groundings and a collision where it sank the steamer Britannic in 1896. It sank in a storm in 1909. All hands made it to lifeboats and were saved. The wreck lies in 220 ft of water near Detour Passage. The forward cabins are gone but the steel boiler cabin is intact along with the engine room where two steeple compound engines can be seen. This is an updated model from the first version. Photography by John Janzen and John Scoles. Model by Jerry Eliason.
