With a hoover at the bottom of the Baltic Sea – wreck of the Reva boat “Leopold”

Underwater archaeologists at the National Maritime Museum in Gdansk have cleaned and begun to baffle the wreck of the Reva boat “Leopold”.

There is no shortage of shipwrecks in the Baltic Sea and underwater archaeologists from the National Museum in Gdańsk explore more interesting vessels. Recently, they have cleaned and researched the wreck of the Reva boat “Leopold”, which lies on the bottom near Jastarnia.

Our underwater archaeologists: Janusz Różycki, Krzysztof Kurzyk, Paweł Litwinienko and Zbigniew Jarocki have cleaned and then started the process of examining the wreck of the Reva boat “Leopold”, lying on the bottom near Jastarnia. – is written in the NMM’s communiqué.

The uniqueness of the wreck of the Rev. boat “Loepold”

What is so special about the investigated wreck? Certainly its history, which is also connected with an important event in the history of our country. On 10 February 1920, General Józef Haller performed the symbolic wedding of Poland to the sea in Puck. At that time, in the nearby town of Rewa, shipowners hoisted the white and red flag on their vessels. These were the ten sailing cargo ships that marked the beginning of the Polish fleet of the Second Republic. Among the ten was the boat “Loepold”.

The vessel had a special significance for the beginnings of our small fleet on the Bay. It formed it together with other boats in the first years after regaining independence and rebirth of the Republic of Poland. The boat also took part in the construction of the port in Jastarnia. – We read in the information provided by the National Museumof Art.

According to the available information, specialists from the NMM in Gdańsk cleaned the wreck of plants and accumulated sediments. For this purpose they used an ejector (a kind of underwater hoover) and a scrubber. Next, the site was thoroughly documented. The archaeologists also collected photogrammetric material, which will make it possible to create a 3D model of the wreck in the near future.
