During the three week long maritime archaeological project, the Team spent approximately 4 hrs underwater in the mornings each day, resulting in around 700 man hours to measure the sections that we could uncover.

This resulted in thousands of measurements which over a two week period, Dr Spooner managed to draw the ships remaining timber plan. A copy of the final project plan can be seen below.
