"In 1960, when the Polish Maritime Museum formally came into existence, it had to start right from scratch, having neither a collection nor a building to house it. Most of historical maritime collections were completely devastated during the 2nd WW. In this situation the first director of the Museum, Przemysław Smolarek, decided to take up the underwater investigations. In the first step he resolved to study the sources concerning Gdańsk Bay which is a kind of natural protection for potential finds and one of the simplest places for inexperience divers. Gdańsk Bay was also a roadstead for the port of Gdańsk. As the entrance to the port was fairly difficult, many accidents happened there." Информация на сайте Navis I.
