|Tools for this tag|
A wreck is a nautical craft that has been sunk or destroyed. A wreck can persist for many centuries and can be a hazard or a point of interest.
(In technical nautical language, ships that were intentionally sunk are not wrecks (e.g.), but this tag has also been used for ships which were scuttled.)
Wreck locations are of interest to:
- shipping and harbour management
Wrecks can be in one or more significant parts (due to current movement, etc).

Wrecks are not rendered in the Standard tile layer.
It it proposed that wrecks should be rendered at close zoom levels as there are very many wrecks near coastlines (especially in the UK).
