I have information about 66 wrecks in the area, write me a PM with email address and I'll send you the .gpx files.

Hi Rudiger,
My maternal Grandfather sailed as bosun on the s/s Northcote. The ship was sold in 1900 and renamed s/s/Violet. I understand it foundered and sank of Bramon Island in the Gulf of Bothnia.

Do you have any other details?

Best Regards,
