Queen of the North sinking

This is the site of the sinking. The Queen of the North was on a southeasterly course coming from the narrow channel, upper left, about 1 km wide to the wider Wright Sound, about 5 km wide. This is about the same as the distance across Badger Bay (in Notre Dame Bay, NL) from Triton to Locke's Harbour. Hard to fathom (no pun intended) how the crew on the bridge could have drifted onto the rocks. Awe inspiring & chilling to know that the vessel ended up with over 200 fathoms of water above her deck. Sad to think that two people may be entombed on her.
