The brigantine Woodstock was wrecked on Providencalis Island, Bahamas C1825. Have you any details?

1 Answer

It might be difficult to get any information on your shipwreck. I would try and find out who owned the ship or which shipping company she sailed for. Or you might have luck with records in the ships home port. Also ship insurance companies might have records. If no information surfaces you could write to a few of the dive shops in the Bahama's that are close to the wreck site. Sometimes one fragment of information leads to more fragments and just like a jig saw you put all the fragments together and get the whole picture.
