The barge YC 21 was used under salvage operations on the wreck of F 2 in Gutter Sound in the 1960s but was lost during a storm 15.November 1968. Barges are not easily tracked down historically, so technical details are sparse, as is her history. The wreck of this wooden barge lies approx twenty meters away from the wreck of F 2 resting on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 14 to 18 meter. Also see the wreck of the research vessel F 2.
