Wreck F53.22 3D Model
The F53.22 wreck includes parts of starboard side from the turn of 15th century. The fragment of ship’s side is over 20 meters long in, and is clinker-laid, where the staves of planking overlapped one another and were fastened with iron rivets. The ship’s side also includes timbers, panelling staves, sheer strakes and gunwale beams. It is higher by one gunwale plank towards the aftercastle which unfortunately failed to survive. In terms of construction method, the ship’s side is similar to the famous 15th century hulk, Copper Ship which was recovered in 1970s and examined by the specialists of the NMM. At present, the ship can be seen in exhibition halls of the NMM main seat at Ołowianka island and in CKWS in Tczew. Because of its uniqueness, the F53.22 wreck is a valuable archaeological object providing knowledge on the construction of the 14th and 15th century vessels.
