Notes :

The wreck is broken in two with the bow section (more intact) lying with the bows pointing south. The break occurs just aft of the central cabins which offer 3 intact baths and the skeletons of several rooms. The lower cabins are intact but heavily silted. The decking and hull are intact and extend for around 50m to the striking bows with anchors still hanging. The stern section is less frequently dived and more broken up and lies with the stern more or less pointing east. The stern section is known to contain shells (as at July 97) from the gun that was present. The stern lies around 30m from the bow section and is often linked by a line from the rear port area of the bow section. The wreck is often buoyed (usually the bow section). Visibility ranges from 0m to 15m+ on a good day. Overall an excellent dive.
