Notes :

The co-ordinates I have given are WGS 84 & will put you right on the boilers. Working your way NE will lead you to the propshaft & rudder, WATCH YOUR HEAD!!!! Turning round & heading SE will lead you to the bows & the centre of the Oslofjord (18673 tons). I have had viz. well over 10m on these wrecks normal is about 3 - 5m There is always something being found here. Well worth diving a few times every year.
