Wreck F53.3 (W-25)
The F53.3 (W-25) wreck constitutes the remains of a 3-mast sailing ship made of oak wood, of over 29 meters in length and 9 meters in width. The estimated capacity (deadweight) of the vessel totals at least 150 lasts (300 tons). The shape of the wreck differs from the most frequently observed underwater archaeological sites of the Gulf of Gdańsk. While in most cases they constitute oval mounds of sand, stones or wooden parts of the structure, in the case of W-25 we have a clear image of the sailing ship structure submerged in the sandy seabed. The bow part protrudes above the seabed at over 1.2 meter and the preserved fragments of ship’s sides are situated deeper towards the partially destroyed stern.
The staves of planking laid edge-to-edge (carvel technique) are fastened with the use of treenails. Near the bow and stern additional timbers supporting the structure are fastened to the keelson.
