LagosB - The unknown ship
Movie: Courtesy of Pedro Mendonça
Lagos B is consisted of a pile of ballast and cargo with no discernible structures. The wreck is at a very deep depth and has not been studied in detail. The wreck was pinpointed by the Instituto Hidrografico whom graciously gave the coordinates to the Project.
The wreck lies at a depth of 45 m and is composed of a impressive ballast mound 12.8 m long by 5.8m wide.
The mound protects a wooden structure, probably the bottom part of a undetermined wreck. No artifacts were located at this time to pinpoint its origin, date or nationality.
