MFV and unknown vessel, July 2011
The MFV is pictured to the top of this shot, while an unknown vessel is in the middle ground. This unknown vessel wasn't recorded by Ted Sutton in 1997 or the Nautical Archaeology Society (shortened to NAS) and the Hampshire and Wight Trust for Maritime Archaeology (in turn abbreviated to HWTMA) in 2006, 2007 or 2008; I noticed it early in 2008, and gave it the UID (Unique Identification) number FL30. I named it FL30 as the NAS/HWTMA project had worked with a list of vessels which they identified with the prefix 'FL' (standing for 'Forton Lake') and numbers 1 through to 27. This in turn was inspired by Ted Sutton's 1997 survey, during which the wrecks identified as FL1 through to FL11 were recorded; the NAS and HWTMA took the step of missing out numbers 12 through to 14, in order to distinguish what had already been covered in 1997 from wrecks which had been first recorded by their own survey team in 2006. In 2007, wreck FL29 was added to the list and, later, FL31; I believe the gap in numbers is, again, to distinguish new discoveries from those already known.

I, however, was working at the time before FL31 was added to the list, and was, I think, the first to record that particular vessel, in 2008. So my list reads slightly differently to that of the NAS and HWTMA, in that I filled the gap between 27 and 29 with FL28, which had arrived late in 2007 and hadn't been recorded by the NAS and HWTMA, while also including FL30, the small vessel on the North shore which in turn hadn't been recognised by the NAS/HWTMA Project.
I then added FL31 to my list, and also noted two interesting lines of posts on the South shore. After much internal debate as to whether I should include these, I concluded that a groyne structure was included as FL27, and that on this precedent I should take note of these two, and they subsequently became FL32 and FL33 respectively.

I don't know what FL30 could have been; perhaps it was a very small barge of some sort, as both ends are identical and it appears that it was not propelled by an engine.
