A Wreck is a naturally occurring structure found in the Shipwrecked DLC. It can occasionally be encountered in the Ocean biome, on dark-colored "ship graveyard" tiles, and in the Coral Reef biome. It appears a broken down part of a sunken ship. It is covered with Limpets and can be harvested every 2 days to yield 1-3 Limpets. It can be hammered down to obtain 1 Boards, but doing so may summon a Pirate Ghost.
