The diver initially thought he discovered a wooden log on the bottom, but after clearing a portion of the find he realised it was a wooden boat. The discovery was made at a depth of 8,5 metres. The man immediately informed the heritage authorities, which had no previous record of a wreckage of this kind at the given location. After a month the artefact was listed within the official registry and is now protected by law.
