This category is for gathering waypoints for Boat & Shipwrecks. These can be recreational, military, commercial boats.
Instructions for Posting a Shipwrecks Waymark:
Please try to give some detail about the boats voyage if you have it. Pictures of the area would be great too. I would ask that you only log the category if you have the exact coordinates but if this is not viable then coordinates for the closest possible viewing point may be acceptable. The coordinates for sunken wrecks should be taken while sitting/floating directly over the site but if this is not fesible then as reliable and as accurate as can be gotten please. Each submitted Shipwreck will be judged on it's own merits and the circumstances or situation in where it is and how close the coordinates are or how the were obtained. If the area is restricted in some way, please get to the closest viewing area and take your coordinates. This being applicable to wrecks that are not completely submerged.
The size of the wreck should be not less than 10 metres in length and giving the name of the boat, it's usage and cargo and also any mythology or lore attached to the wreck would be good if possible.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Only log the site if you have visited it personally.
Floating over a site does not qualify as a find if it is a wreck that requires diving - you must have actually visited the site - therefore photos of the site are good.
