- The wreck book : rediscovered New Zealand shipwecks / Steve Locker-Lampson and Ian Francis
G525 LOC (Call Number)
This book covers all known wrecks and hulks in New Zealand and its environs. By known wrecks is meant those that can be visited by non-divers or those that have been dived on at some time or other. Known facts about all the wrecks are given in as much detail as possible: their condition, depth, position, weather conditions prevailing in the area, as well as an account of the more interesting artifacts recovered. The text is supplemented by photographs of the ships in their prime, some of them sinking, the remains as they are today and some of the recovered artifacts.
117 p. : illustrations (some colour), maps ; 29 cm.
