Baltic Ace

Seeing as we're drawing closer to fully funding this wreck, and the fact I'm in a one hour queue right now, I would like to add the Baltic Ace to the options being considered for our community wreck.

The Baltic Ace sank on the 5th of December 2012, just off the coast of The Netherlands, in the North Sea. It was carrying a load of 1400 new cars destined for Sweden. After a collision probably due to human error, she sank within 15 minutes, leaving 13 survivors of a total crew of 24.

I think this would make a cool shipwreck because it's in the North Sea, adding a new sea to WoD and it's at a realistic depth to dive. (I realize the Bismarck is in the North Sea too, but I consider it to be different because of the extreme depth). It seems like a cool wreck to explore as well, with that cargo and the fact it has sustained heavy damage. Perhaps we could even pair it with recovery missions later on.

For more details about the Baltic Ace, see this wikipedia article.
