Notes :

Very nice dive, the stern is completely intact, with doors hanging open, glass in the windows etc. We dived it in excellent viz (15m) last year and could see whole parts of the vessel. Beware in low viz as blasting has opened her up in places and it would be very easy to get inside without realising it. A swim round the stern and into the engine room is an exhilarating dive.
