ferry wreck between java and bali

7th January 2011, 13:22

Various charts show a wreck mark near gilli manuk in Bali. This is between Java and Bali in a narrow straight that separates the two islands. I have heard reports of a ferry wreck with trucks onboard from divers but have been able to find ZERO information on it other than the wreck mark on the charts.

The wreck is listed on electronic charts as well as Indonesian charts. Unfortunately Indonesian newspapers in Bali do not archive any of their stories so i can’t get any research that way.

I know my info is vague but does anyone have any ideas or where I can go to get further information. The Indonesian ferries have an appalling safety record so this probably did not raise much of a fuss when it sank.

Best regards,
