Notes :

Nice wreck almost completely intact although this area is notorious for variable viz. can be 8m after a dry spell although 2-3m is more the norm. Still packed to the decks with beers bottles, very silty. Watch out for the fishing nets tangled over the bows. Possible to get inside the bows thro the collision damage on the starboard side, also to descend thro hole where funnel used to be to engine room....for nutters only!
