    Researching Wrecks

    Does anyone know if there is anywhere online where I can read official Captain/Crew reports on the sinking of their ship ? I have a number of targets to research and have looked at a numerous websites which have drawn a blank.
    Any information will be appreciated.
    Cheers

    A few good sites to get you started. There are some good links on the Miramar site. It really depends on what type of ship you're looking for.

    Newspaper archives are a good source of info too. I was lucky to do. The Iona II dive trail first run and was chatting with the lead marine archeologist. She had learned so much of the back story from press clippings of the day - it really helped to bring the wreck to life.
