hard to imagine, how a ship can go down in such a quiet place
like the Mariager Fjord. The fact is, that nobody actually knows
how it end up here.
A legend tells, that a woman put the ship on fire, while the crew,
who was swedish, was at the local pub.
the proffesional diver, Gert
and his divingteam, was doing an excavation of the wreck in 1989,
they found absolutely no sign after a fire by the wreck. It's
more like the ship was in an inactive period, because nothing
personal at all is found in or outside the wreck.
The water in Mariager Fjord is far as salty like the water in
the North Sea. That means, parts made of wood, is found in a remakable
fine condition. The depth by the wreck is 12 meter and on a sunny
winterday, the visibillity reaches 10-15 meters.
You can read more about the wreck in my article, published in
"DYK", June 2000.
