This is a really great resource Cornelius asked me to post for him:

It shows the wrecksite of the VOC ship  ,, Keizerin ,,  . They have been looking for this wreck for a long time . The cargo was  Chinese Gold and Porcelain , so worthwhile to salvage . Research certainly paid off here  !!  The arrow points directly to the wrecksite . Maybe somebody wants to salvage this wreck .

Christian as I wrote you the benefit of having a great number of old maritime maps is that you can find long lost wrecksites that are marked on them . All it takes is looking and searching. The most famous mapmakers  were Dutch so it is easy for me to go over them . The VOC was quite active in the area's   China  , Formosa , India , Ceylon and Indonesia .  Furthermore was there the route form and toward Indonesia  coming from Holland  . So there is plenty to look for . The ,,Keizerin ,, was a well loaded ship . At the time of wrecking she had a  ,,flute ,, ship in tow . A flute was a smaller ship . This Flute was also wrecked at the same location . For many years these ships were looked for but never could anybody find them . Now seeing the clear location on a VOC map makes it a lot simpler to go after her  ( and the ship in tow ) . We should look just outside the Bay of Padaran .  Also the map showed the spot where a Chinese Junk was wrecked . This spot is a little up stream in the Couchim River  ( entering this river through the  East River .  Research certainly is paying off for me .   Cornelius
