Notes :

This wreck lies onits starboard side in approx 34m, it is intact excepth of a little dammage to the midships just aft of the second funnel. It is cover in dense marine growth, more so than its counterparts. Access into the ship is again possible and this makes an interesting dive.. The bottom has a number of interesting articles upon it and has a number of large plates, orgin unknown as I went looking for the enterence there exit would have made, but to no avail.
