Notes :

This wreck is the deepest war wreck in scapa. The wreck is upside down and it is an awesome experience diving with the deck above you. There is coal every where and open hatchs, but the bottom is silt so beware of your finning action.. There is a large hold on the starboard stern and it is posible to get in here, the torpedo tubes are also worth looking for at the end of the dive on the way up.. Bring a LARGE torch as it is dark..
