Mysteries of "Salem Express"
In the evening of Dercember, 15, 1991 was a continuous cloudiness and hard precipitations, which is untypical for these places. On the way to the north we used the advantages of leeward cost to protect passengers. The ship approached to the Hidman reefs by midnight, and in these conditions it was impossible to make out reefs in the water. Salem Express stroke against the southest reef. It was hard sliding blow. The result was of two kinds. Firstly, the hull was broken through in the fore-part of starboard. Simultaneously, because of the push the hatch on the head was flipped and the water flooded the deck with machines. This double push was absolutely fatal, and when the enormous quantity of water gushed on the ship simultaneously from two sources, everything happened extremely quickly.

The second peace life of Swedish war ship Vassa
The time on the board was stopped on August, 10, 1928 at 5 a.m. When the ship was lifted, sailors' lockers were filled by provisions, clothes and small private things. The barrels with meat were in the hold, admiral table was in the cabin, a beautiful officers' tin service was on the board, bronze candlestick, lamps and... the cat of the ship.
