NewZealand. Tasman Bay ?

Bit of a guess. there is an old hulk in Tasman Bay called the Janie Seddon. that might be her.

Gargantua wreck, Wingfield Basin.

Life is an experiment, use the right tools and elements, and you'll do fine.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Dang, I just found the same wreck. Initially I thought it was in lake Ontario, but some research talked about the wreck of the old lumber carrier barge in Wingfield basin. Good Work DJL.

Well done, DonJ.. If our Welshman doesn't soon confirm I think you can move this along anyway.

I figured it would be the Great Lakes.. now for the story behind the wreck.. FW???

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

This is an interesting game and one can learn a lot of facts; but what does it say about a bunch of sailors sitting and looking at google earth instead of varnishing the teak?

...um... I have the perfect amount of teak on deck..... NONE!!

btw:

Quote:
Late in the autumn of 1952, the old steamer GARGANTUA, her machinery removed, was under tow on Georgian Bay, bound for the North Channel where she was to be used as a lumber barge. In heavy seas off Cabot Head, she sprang a leak, forcing the tug to take her into nearby Wingfield Basin. The GARGANTUA remained here during the following winter and although there was every expectation that her owners would return for her in the spring, they never did, perhaps because the hull was strained. Settling to the bottom she became a permanent fixture in the northern corner of the Basin. Most of the hull, was above water, and during the next two decades grass sprouted between her deck planks. In 1971, the wreck took fire and much of the deck was burned away.
