Notes :

With care the Wreck is diveable at most states of the tide. We dived the wreck on 4 July 1999 and the wreck was festooned in soft life aneomes, coral, huge quantities of Pollack, a conger and many Bib. Although the viz was poor the site is excellent and definately worth a dive. The co-ordinates given are GPS using WGS72 datum.
