The Dead Man and Iholm

The shoal actually reached above sea level in the 1690s, when the first charts were drawn, and it is significantly larger on the older charts. Before the fairway was straightened, Dødemanden was connected to Middelgrunden (The Middle Shoal) in the middle of the channel. In 1922, a part of the shoal was dug out to make navigation easier, and today, Dødemanden is a separate shoal that lurks less than two metres below the surface.
