Hello! I am interested in getting information about the Adgillus (1874 barque rigged ship) wreck, which is "17 miles SE of Isle of Man". It was salvaged in the early 1990's by 'Anglo-American Marine Recovery Ltd'. The only names I have from this outfit are Steve Pickering and Gary Goodyear.

: I'd like to locate one of these gentlemen or anyone else who worked recovery there. I'm also interested in photographs of the site and the lat/lon of the site.

: Any pertinent information is greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Hello Seth
She lies at position 54 02.833N 03 48.458W, 24.2 n.miles ESE of Douglas Head.
I don't know the people involved that you mention, but there is a couple of pages about her in Adrian Corkhill's book 'Shipwrecks of the Isle of Man' by Tempus Publishing ISBN 0 7524 2698 2

Cheers Ron
