A mystery wreck on the seafloor of the Marlborough Sounds is not missing yacht the Sioux, police say.
The police dive squad was in Picton on Thursday taking a closer look at the wreck about 400 metres east of Wedge Point, at the entrance to Picton Harbour.
Tasman District Police communications manager Barbara Dunn said the boat had been identified as being a much older launch. It was not a yacht or a ketch, Dunn said.
