Anchor from the SV Carl
Anchor from the SV Carl, taken 2 years ago
Uncovered by storms in February 2014. However, it was in a fierce storm on October 7, 1917 that the Carl met its fate. It is believed that the ship, which was registered in Hamburg, was in Cardiff docks at the outbreak of the war in 1914 and so was impounded. Three years later it was being towed to London to be broken up for scrap when it broke free in the storm and went aground in Booby's Bay.
