    Identyfication of Boelcke wreck

    We found new wreck in Baltic sea and managed to identify it as German seaplane tender BOELCKE:

    Video made during identification dives on this wreck. Now we have not doubts that this is wreck of the Boelcke. Only two crafts like that (German seaplane tenders) were sunk in this area - Boelcke nad Wedel. They differed significantly in construction and we proved that this one is Boelcke.

    Well done! Very cool, but I am surprised this wreck was not well known based on how much fishing net there was. It seemed like every square cm was covered.

    Sure it was known to local fishermen but not to divers and not by Boelcke name.
