Storm Damages Sunken Frigate

Monday, March 06, 2006
The storm that lashed the lower North Island has caused wreckage from an old navy frigate sunk near Wellington last year, to be washed ashore. The former HMNZS Wellington was sold to the Sink F69 Trust, which sunk it about 500 meters off Island Bay – virtually in Cook Strait – on November 14. Prior to the sinking Island Bay man, some warned that the lightly built ship would break up very quickly and become a danger to divers, not the tourist and diving area the trust claimed it would be. Residents in the area found the ship’s wreckage, scattered along the length of the beach. The Wellington police about 4.45pm and notified them of the wreckage. A diving team would go down once the weather settled down and check out the wreckage. (Source: stuff.co.nz)
