Alaska Shipwreck Awareness

One of the primary objectives for this review of the shipwrecks of Alaska is to shed more light on all of the marine disasters that have taken place.  Obscured by time, many of the mishaps and disasters have been forgotten.  Unfortunately the factors that led to them still lurk and humans still make mistakes.  Several important purposes can be served by a thorough evolutionary review of Alaska Shipwrecks

  • Remember those who were lost and the what, when, how and where that led to the disasters.
  • Review the circumstances that led to the losses as information becomes available.
  • Locate sites and identify the value of wrecks and wreck sites.
  • Study the dynamics and dangers present to possibly forewarn the unwary.
  • Evolve shipwreck prevention and location technology.

Alaska Shipwrecks

Alaska Shipwrecks is a work in progress.  In time it will include a review of all losses of life and vessels in and near the navigable waters of Alaska.  It is a preview of an Encyclopedia of Alaska Shiprecks I will publish in the future.  I dedicate this site to the memory of my many friends and acquaintances lost in and around the Alaska Commercial Fishing Industry who left port and never returned.  If you knew someone who was lost please remember them by posting at the end of the page where their loss is noted.  Thank you all who visit this Alaska Shipwrecks site.  Please respect copyrights.  Warren Good
