Island life

( and family album )

Island scenery

Finland has the busiest and most challenging cruising grounds in the world.
180 000 islands and probably 10 x as many shallows !...a virtual minefield...

This arctic paradise apparently is the largest
(by quantity of islands) archipelago in the world !

The combined length of all shoreline in Finland is equal to
8 times around the world at the equator !

Warm water combined with pollution produces nasty sometimes toxic

The wreck

My marinarcheological excavation project. Discovered it in - 81

It was previously completely buried in the seafloor.

Age ? .....Iemanja´ only knows......

Dendrochronological dating techniques could not find a match ,
nor did I find anything in it to shed light on the matter.
