The Shipwreck Graveyard

The Wreck site is a database of wreck ships from that spans a couple of centuries. I had no idea that there are so many wrecks. Wow! It is both amazing and sad. Lots of history here too. Most of them are from the 19th and the 20th centuries. The list of the ships is very long. The site includes information for each ship: the nationality type, propulsion cause, year, weight, latitude and longitude. However, Not every ship has a photo. But if you want to see photos only (or focus on them), you can view them by selecting "photos" under the "wrecks" button. More information include but not limited to are, charts, weather forecasts, fish, wreckdiving conditions, and the particular events of the day for each wreck.

One last note, this site can be viewed in four languages, English, Dutch, French and German. Pretty neat.

I have not seen anything about Noah's ark though...;-D
