    [SIZE=-1]Recently I found in Baltic Sea, off Scholpin, a wreck that in my opinion can be remain of R227 lost during 2 WW.
    From wreck I picked up an object with some german inscription - a kind of electrical part, isolator.
    [SIZE=-1]Wreck is in very bad condition, uncompleted, badly destroyed, and all covered with fishing nets. It`s hard to say what part of ship it is exactly. It is approx. 20 - 30m long, quite narrow, and there is quite a lot of aluminium parts - frames, ribs, plates, etc.
    I think it can be ramain of Raumboot 227 (Raumboots were made of aluminium) - lost on 18.03.1945 - ``Nähe Stolpebank zwischen Scholpin und Rixhöft durch sowjetische Fliegerangriff und Artillerie am 18.03.1945 versenkt.``
    I`m gonna do some more dives on this wreck if weather allows. [/SIZE]

    Did you ever do any more diving on this wreck? Sounds intriguing. This is an old thread, but maybe you can post the pics again and give an update.
