OLD WRECK.

-

PICKED UP IN TRAWL.

Captain Stuart, of the State trawler Brolga,   has reported to his department that when fishing on the "home" grounds between Cape Solander and Wata Mooli on January 26 the trawl became fast to an old wreck. On haul- ing the trawl was half-full of old rotten tim- ber, with pieces ot metal attached, and also an old-fashioned anchor windlass lever en- crusted with coal. Apparently this windlass lever was from a very old wreck, because   the timber would crumble at the touch.
