Hazards of the Corrib
The wreck of a 19th century lakeboat. This is a very good demonstration that when a vessel sinks it is entirely possible for the wooden contents of the vessel to remain in situ.
It seems to depend upon the circumstances of the sinking, and of course the density of the timber from which the accessories are constructed. Not all wood floats, and most timber sinks when saturated.
