Not the Stockforce

Not the Stockforce – 50:09:806 N – 03:50:270 W

This wreck was thought to be the Stockforce for many years. However, on Aug 2008 Nick Chipchase showed that this wreck did not fit in with what the Stockforce was about.

The wreck is at a depth of 59m with bows pointing towards 312 degrees. There is a list to port. Midships sees a single boiler with with a donkey nearby. Towards the bow it’s pretty well broken up apart from the chain locker. There’s an obvious shaft tunnel that runs through the after hold to the damaged stern and prop.

Probably a WW1 wreck with a little coal around. Now known as the North East Point.
