These data were collected by Knut Lyngberg of the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) on a KONGSBERG EM 3002 multibeam sounder mounted on board the Canadian Coast Guard Launch "Otter Bay". This previously unknown wreck was discovered during a routine multibeam charting survey of the west coast of British Columbia, Canada.

Image created using CARIS 6.0
The survey was funded by the CHS and Natural Resources Canada and the image created using CARIS 6.0 in 3D subset mode. As the wreck is unknown the Registrar of Wrecks has been notified and steps are underway to confirm it's identity. Water column data was collected at the time but has not yet been processed. However, from the EM 3002 data, we can calculate the following: The wreck is in 85 meters of water. The approximate size of the vessel is 61m in length, 11.6m in width and 13.8 meters in height.
