POPPETJESWRAK

/ 3

The Poppetjeswrak (the Puppet Wreck) is a spectacular wreck in the North Sea. Unfortunately diving is officially not allowed because it's in the shipping route. It's an old sailing steamer, which stands straight on the seabed and is still reasonably intact. The bow, hull, some cover sheets, the steam boilers and steam engines are clearly visible during a dive. Visibility is usually good. The holds are open and still reveal parts of their cargo. Porcelain vases and crystal carafes are still regularly found. Once upon a time masses of porcelain puppetfaces were found, which gave the wreck its name, the Puppet Wreck. The wreck is further covered in riddles. Little is known about the origin or the cause of its destruction.
