De Jonge Seerp W-27 F54.3
The F54.3 De Jonge Seerp (W-27) wreck constitutes the remains of the Frisian „kuff” which sank in the Gulf of Gdańsk in 1791. The site covers the area of more than 2000 m2 and includes the bottom part of the ship’s structure and the so-called concentration 1 located ca. 40 meters to the south-east, constituting the remains of the ship’s stern and superstructure. The structure includes 26-meter long keel, floor timbers, staves of planking laid edge-to-edge, panelling staves, and keelson with the seat of mast. On site we also discovered a 7-meter hinged rudder which was recovered.
The head of hinged rudder of the W-27 wreck is decorated with a three-leaf clover, which is characteristic for the Dutch ships between the 17th and 19th century. Moreover, the relations with the Dutch are also confirmed by brass snuff box with inscription in Dutch, 25 coins from the Republic of the United Provinces, and kaolin clay pipes manufactured in Gouda.
