      That is a very great question! I would say that yes, eventually shipwrecks will be eroded by the sea, since the sea has salt in it. But, I guess it depends on what the ship is made of. If a part of the ship is made of plastic, then that part would not erode over time. And wooden ships would not erode entirely either, but the sea life would take over it and make it into homes. So, to answer your question, shipwrecks will be eroded by sea water and taken over by sea life, after a long period of time. Hope that helps. 🙂
