On the seabed, at the depth of 5,6 m, lie the remains of a flat bottom craft (probably large river ship), positioned bottom up. The analysis of the two samples collected from the hull for the dendrochronological study suggest that the vessel has been built in the second half of the XVI century.

Measurements - length: 9,5 m, width: 3,6 m. The planks, 7 cm thick and up to 50 cm wide, are caulked using the clamp technique (moss was put between the edges of the stitched and pressed with the wooden slat and metal clamp). The clamps are very corroded and its hard to determine their shape. The shipboards and the edge beams have not survived. Beneath, the hefty oak floor are visible. Only the small fragment of the construction juts from the sand. The rest is buried underneath.
