Another idea surrounding shipwrecks which is repeated is the practice of wrecking. For anyone who doesn't know the term wrecking refers to the practice of removing valuables from shipwrecks which have landed close to shore. One particular story which stands out is of a wrecked ship which was full of pork. The men of the community came home with chunks of meat for their family's supper after that particular wreck.
