Largs Marina or Inverkip Marina though Largs is closer. Also Clyde diving 01475 522930
Notes :

The hull is generally intact apart from the collision damage on the port side near the forecastle. The timber decks have long since rotted away but still loads of nooks and crannies to explore, just bring a good torch as the clyde tends to swallow any ambient light at quite shallow depths. Pollack,wrasse, ling, congers etc
