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.
