About this project

Dynekilen
Dynekilen

"Slaget vid Dynekilen var ett sjöslag som ägde rum den 28 juni 1716 under stora nordiska kriget. Slaget stod mellan en dansk–norsk styrka ledd av Peder Tordenskjold och en svensk transportflotta som hade ankrat i fjorden Dynekilen norr om Strömstad i nordligaste Bohuslän. Slaget, ett av de mest kända i norsk krigshistoria, störde allvarligt Karl XII:s försök att erövra Norge."

  The search for Strömstiernas lost ships:

This project involves surveying the specific location of a historical wreck site located in Strömstad, Sweden. The location of the site is based upon the research and already finished preliminary sonar survey of the area, during summer 2016. Based on the preliminary survey, I classify this as a viable project.
 The project has a basic strategy:
 1. Conduct side-scan surveys to verify the location of the lost ships.
 2. Postprocess sidescan sonar data.
 3. Process seafloor maps, or 3D maps of the site.  

 The objective of this project is to confirm the identity and to evidence the exact location of the site. 

We have a Survey vessel availiable, equiped with sidescan sonars for shallow- and deep waters. 

Phase one of this project will involve a 1 week coordinated survey of the area in question. Costs involved are vessel preparation, fuel, crew, side scan sonar processing, other shipboard costs, food and travel costs for this period.
All backers will receive:
 • A priority option to be involved in subsequent recovery operations.
It must be noted that in the early stages of this project exact details will be withheld for security reasons.
• Priority access to phase 2 and 3 of the projects as and when the aims and objectives are achieved.
• Further details available on request.
I am confident that this venture is likely to produce a significant return, as the historical value of the wrecks and the site where a part in the Swedish/Norwegian union resolution.
The crew are experienced in conducting seabed sonar surveys, and are experienced and certified commercial divers.
We have been involved in several wreck surveys and dive/recovery operations which have resulted in significant return.

Risks and challenges

The risks in this project are few. The most likely risk is that all ship details are lost due to fire or age, and there are only cannons an cannonballs left...
