In the early September, 2005 I was offered to join the team of Gert Normann and his crew at "Cable One", in the search for the wreck of "Dana".
Connected to the expedition is
The Strandingsmuseum at Torsminde, where founds from the wreck will arrive for an exhibition in the future. An exhibition with plates and a very beautiful model of the ship has already opened.
After intensive work with the sidescan sonar, provided byPhilip Nathansen, 31 objects were found. Most of them could be excluded at once, but a couble looked interesting in size and shape. Per Søgaard and Gert Normann him self went down to take a closer look at the wreck. They found a rather broken wreck at 47meter of depth. Shape an size of was tally with the collected data on "Dana" but they didn't found any objects that could identify the wreck as "Dana" for sure.
Unfortuanetly the conditions at the wreck was not suitable for photography this time, but I sure hope to returm in the future.....in the meantime I'll work on getting Trimix in my CCR to prevent the high N2-narcosis built up at that depth.
Hopefully a future excavation will discover the real identity of the wreck... until then, you can read more about the history of the wreck at the
The Strandingsmuseum website.

At last, but definitely not at least, THANK YOU SO MUCH, to Gert Normann for taking me into his project!
