General Information :
Small Boat Launching :
Probably the easiest(?) launch site for RIBs etc is Fort Bovisand which has full facilities for divers.
Notes :

This is a safe dive and makes a good Novice introduction to both boat and wreck diving. I speak with experience it was my first boat dive and the first time on a wreck. There is usually plenty of life on the wreck although on busy week-ends this life tends to be divers. Ideally you should avoid Bank Holiday's etc. I have seen a John Dory on one occassion. In the holds you can see such things as tank tracks. The stern has broken away and is on its own lying apart from the main wreck.
