    Diving a wreck in the north know as The Carina, the Brick wreck or even the Glass wreck does anybody know any more about her? She apparently sank in the 1920,s according to local fishermen. She is called Carina after a dive guide. Originally found with lots of bricks surrounding the wreckage hence the name. Subsequently its been decided these bricks were ballast and infact part of her cargo was Belgian Val St Lambert glass.
    Does anybody know her real name, date of loss and owners ??? Tall order I know but.........

    Hi Alan,

    She was the Marcobrunner, named after the wine of the same name. I'll check and add a bit more detail later, but if you've dived the wreck you'll rememeber she's like an Observers guide to ship layout; intact bow, boilers, engine, propshaft, stern all laid out in a line on the reef in water plenty shallow enough to spend a good while diving her.
