DIved this wreck twice some years ago now. Very dark both times but clear so good with a wide beam torch. Bow section of the wreck very impressive with list to port and first section of the foremast projecting high with a trawl net on it. Wreckage strewn around and holds visible. Deco moutned up quick but that was using air back then. Would definately do again but is a long trip out.
