Report on the probable location of the schooner Klaraborg

Author/s K. Millar and J. Clarke

Year of publication 1996

Report Number: 126

The aim of this short report is to gather all the available information in an attempt to determine the most reliable position fix for the resting site of the Klaraborg. The intention is then to relocate the site and conduct an inspection to research the impact of sinking and post depositional effects on the 132 year old wooden vessel after being submerged for 14 years. This study will assist with comparative research on vessels which have been submerged for greater periods of time but in similar underwater environments.
