Keep in mind that there are many legal aspects that have to be considered before diving on or otherwise interacting with a shipwreck. Under both international law and the law of most coastal states war wrecks are usually considered grave sites and are completely protected. Ship wrecks are not generally considered owner less but remain the property of the ship owner, or the owners heirs or assigns, or in the case of state vessels the government of the flag state. Below are some informative links starting with a general description of the subject of shipwrecks.
