Still Waters Posted January 25 #1 Share Posted January 25 (IP: Staff) · A team of maritime archaeologists has discovered the true identity of a large wooden ship hulk buried in Hooe Lake, on the outskirts of Plymouth. The remains of the vessel lie buried alongside a stone jetty on the north side of the lake. The hulk has now been identified by The Ships Project as the John Sims, a Westcountry schooner. Until the recent discovery, it was thought to have been a Dutch barge called the Two Brothers. The Ships Project is a volunteer non-profit organisation that undertakes research and exploration of maritime historical sites and events, both on land and underwater. Hooe Lake is known as a "ships' graveyard" due to the 36 known ship hulks buried there. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-devon-64385280 3 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
