This database is not available on line. Reports are ordered and then sent from this end by e-mail attachment. Larger files will be zipped. If you are not sure which report you want then e-mail me. No need to waste money on a list that is not required. If it is just one or two vessels you want then e-mail me and I will run a search for you. No memberships needed. No pic's of ships as I am a little concerned about 'copyright' infringements. Can I guarantee Long/Lat positions....No.

The Wreck Lists


A note of caution. No database has a list of "all" vessels wrecked or sunk. They have a list of what they have been able to accumulate to this point. There are some lists with good information and then again there are some lists that are copies of copies.

For those of you who are into maps showing wreck locations may I suggest Google Earth, and it’s free to download. There are indeed several wrecked ships to be seen worldwide and there are places that you can actually search underwater. It also shows the long’ and lat’ that you have the pointer sitting at. Learn to create overlays showing the data that you wish to save, then, why stop at just one overlay. Quite the program, indeed.

The best place for a detailed cargo list is probably Lloyds of London. Hull and cargo are both insured separately. If paid out, the “Insurer” owns ship and cargo. If you are going after the cargo make sure you have a deal with the “owner”. If you buy and old wreck, be careful, you might find yourself liable for future problems relating to that wreck..
