Discovered along the banks of the Weser River in 1962, this large vessel appears to have sunk before it was completed. It has been preserved in polyethylene glycol and is on display in the Deutsches Schiffahrtsmuseum in Bremerhaven, Germany. Approximately fifty tons of timber made up the hull, some of them weighing 400 to 600 kg. There was an aftercastle, windlass, and capstan on board.1
