Dive Report: Deep dark wreck with an open hull, like a rowing boat. The superstructure and the wooden decking have fallen into the holds. There is a winch on the bow. At the stern there is emergency steering gear and the propeller and rudder.
Dive Report: Daytona12 16/12/12 The line is on the stern post had a good dive on it viz was 3-4 no current but a bit of swell on the surface .My buddy Alastair (the younger),s first serious wreck dive which he seems to have really enjoyed .We went forward on the starboard side following the gunwail to the bow had a look and back on the same side to the stern dropped over to see the rudder and prop back to the line 0 no deco and up .Not a long dive but had said no deco before we went in .
