Often this has led to the identification of a wreck and its history, and in some cases, further actions were taken to protect the wreck.
Among the most noteworthy chance finds are:
The Stinesminde Wreck
Location: Mariager fjord
Wreck from 1618 located at 9-11 meters depth. The outline of a ship around 16 meters in length is visible and especially the bow and stern planks, and mast stand out. Today a net protects the wreck.
The Aggersund Wreck
Medieval wreck. 12 x 4 meters, sailing, clinker-built with iron rivets. The wreck lies upside down and may still contain preserved cargo. Sandbags currently protect the wreck.
The Guldborgsund Wreck
Wreck from around the early 17th century. A 16-metre long vessel, presumably with the hull contents still intact. Among some of the rarer finds was the "Mast Coin" a lucky coin placed underneath the mast. The coin was a 19 millimetre silver coin.
