History of the ship!
The Vasa was a swedish warship that was built between 1626 and 1628. It sank after sailing 1,300 m (she only was sailing for a mile ) into her maiden voyage on 1628 August 10th. She was located again in the late 1950's and was busy shipping in a lane just out side the Stockholm harbor. She was in a museum called the wasa ship yard and then moved to a museum in Stockholm. It sank and Anders Franzen brought it up and 95% of it was perfectly fine. She sank in the Baltic Sea which is good because then all the sea worms will not be able to eat all the decks made out of wood.
What was on it.
When the ship was brought up what was found on it was clothes, weapon, cannons, tools, coins, food, drinks and six of the 10 sails. And there were a lot of people on the ship. There was even food in casks , gun powder, and the cannon balls did weigh a lot. Her ballast weighed 120 tons of stone. And 64 bronze cannons on two gun decks
There were a lot of people on the ship . There was a crew of 133 sailers aboard the ship and there was also a lot of officers aboard the ship.
When it sank.
It sank about 100 feet below the water and about 100 yards from the shore. It sank about 1 mile after it left the dock for war. And it left land on August 10, 1628.
How it sank.
It was built in orders of the king in Sweden, Gustavus Adolphus and since he was making them rush they left the back doors on the bottom part of the ship open and when it left the dock the water started flowing in the ship so the ship started sinking slowly.
Who was on the ship.
What hapend when it was sinking.
There was a sudden squall, her gun port's were still open, and she listed heavily to port, the gun ports sank below sea level and the water started gushing out. It took few minutes to sink. And it all happend when king Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden was rushing around and when they were lanching they they left the back doors opened were the water flows below sea level so they never closed it and then the water started gushing inside the ship. But it took a little while to make the water make the ship sink but the water made the ship eventually sink. And the Vasa was going out for war and it didn't even last a little bit more than a mile.
