The Boga was sunk deliberately in September, 2012 in Kubu close to Tulamben. Unlike the Liberty Wreck which broke into many pieces the Boga is intact.
The ship lies in a depth of 14 to 34 meters and is almost 40 meters long.
It will probably become a habitat for many marine species, similar to the Liberty in Tulamben.
Attractions: A wooden steering wheel on the upper deck. A car wreck in one of the lower decks. A large grouper who is very shy - maybe he has already had bad experiences with divers. Playful batfish, Anthias seem to feel good at the old fishing nets. Several banner fish.
“I have to say that some more environmentally friendly actions should have been taken before sinking the ship. Was is absolutely necessary to leave the tyres on the car? It would have taken 10 minutes to remove them….the tyres will deteriorate over the years, releasing some very bad chemical compounds like hydrocarbons and heavy metals. The same for the other tyres… probably used as boat fenders.” (Francesco Ricciardi, Bali Expat, 16th-29th January, 2013)
