First Site – Third Trip – More Buoys and New Pictures

The third trip to the Träskö-project’s first site was made 3.6.2018. During the trip, the places of the diver buoys and anchor weights were rearranged to safer locations and the potential mooring buoy places were inspected by divers. New pictures – maybe the first ever(?) of the Cannonside wreck – were taken by Rupert Simon from Nousu ry.. All the descend/ascend ropes and knots thereto were inspected for wearing and found to be OK.

Current author of this site, Markku Luoto, has been scuba diving since the late 80’s and became involved with marine archaeology in the 90’s as a student in the University of Helsinki. In turn of the millennia, he participated in the building of the Gustav Adolf Wreck Park in Helsinki as a volunteer diver. After the “rush hour years”, he rediscovered scuba diving through his sons, which left him wondering, why the wreck park concept had not hit the mainstream like the reef protection initiatives elsewhere? Thanks to the active dive club Nousu ry, his idea of adopting the wrecks around Stora Träskö island in Porkkala was met with great enthusiasm and the rest – as we now know – will be history 🙂
