On my way to Ysgramor's Tomb, I saw a ship outline to the northwest and went to investigate. I went out into the ice flows and the ship outline on the compass began to highlight as I got closer. Then, it went poof and disappeared. I never was notified that I arrived some place, and it does not show up on my map. Does anyone know what this ship is and how do I reach it?

I know exactly what you are talking about. I tried swimming down to it, but died a few times trying to investigate... by drowning – Zero Stack Mar 12 '12 at 20:22
On PC (I don't know other consoles, must be tested) there's a bug that if you down to water your head (on first person camera) to the half, and you can see the water line at half of screen, you are able to view all objects under water without the "fog" of a disturb water. – Leandro Tupone Mar 22 '12 at 16:37

It is an under water ship, which can be investigated, if you want to investigate fully i recommend either a water breathing potion or spell.

so it won't trigger that I've been there unless I swim down to it? is it worth investigating? – IrishJMA Mar 12 '12 at 20:30
Yes you have to go to it to get the icon to become white (dunno how else to put it), as for 'is it worth it?' i'm not sure as i cannot remember what is there nor do i remember the name to look it up in the wiki. Go there then look the name in the wiki to find this out... – Samuel Standrin Mar 12 '12 at 20:37
@IrishJMA Is it worth investigating? Depends on how much you like iceberg lettuce. – brymck Mar 13 '12 at 16:22

Sounds like Pilgrim's Trench

There isn't any loot down there and other than for the purposes of adding a discovered location to your map, no, there isn't much point in going down there. If you do though, have a few water breathing potions well stocked and some health potions if you begin to drown.

I haven't been to the ship yet since I only heard about where it was now but I do plan on searching it. You could try a water breathing enchantment or something. I'm not sure where but I found a helmet once with the enchantment and I just put it into a ring. Should help if you don't want any healing potions or water breathing ones.
