There is the wreck of a 70ft wooden former MFV located in position 50°22.5 N 003°35.0 W on Parson’s Mud – on the Dartmouth side of the channel, located between Maypool and Greenway.  The vessel has sunk at her mooring, well clear of the channel, The vessel is awash at high water, with just her mast and top of the superstructure visible, and she has been surrounded by a bright orange oil spill boom.  There is no risk to normal navigation, however from this evening she will also be marked with an emergency wreck marking buoy and a yellow flashing light located 50m to the north of the wreck.   There will be diving operations today (26/10/23) and further salvage operations during the near future.  All mariners are asked to keep well clear of the wreck – at a distance of at least 50m from the oil spill boom, and minimise their wash in the area, to help the boom maintain its integrity.

Note that the owner of the vessel is unharmed and well, and their has been minimal environmental impact.
