A bit of history! In 1917 the SS Pegu, en-route to Liverpool from Rangoon with a cargo of fine Burmese teak was torpedoed by a U-boat off the south coast of Ireland and sank. In 2011, 80 tonnes of teak was salvaged from the silt and most was found to be in excellent condition. Some of this teak was used in the restoration of the Cutty Sark and in the construction of the LR Scow 'Petrel'.
