I (Simon Leak) bought this wreck with my then diving partner Derek Evans in 1971 for the sum of 200.00, when we were scrap-metal diving, but we never got to see her. Does anyone have any underwater photos of her?

We also helped strip the S.S. Bay Gitano in Lyme Bay of her non-ferrous and prop. shaft.
