General Information :
Small Boat Launching :
Pouthoustock or Porthkerris beach. Be ware on the shingle beach very easy for cars to get stuck. Take 20/30M of good rope.
Notes :

Hit the Vase rock at night doing 13 knots, lost its rudder in the collision and sank about 1/4 mile away in only ten minutes. Was carrying 300 tin ingots - most of which have been savaged, but the odd one turns up now and again. Also plenty on china plates can be found though not always whole!!

Dived her in 2005, it is quite broken up lots of metal everwhere. Brought up some plates etc. Lots of people lost their lives on her when she sank.
