Been trying to get this one for a long time. Vis is normally too poor to make any decent video - here the vis was about 3 to 3.5 metres. Mind you it looks far better in 1080p (sorry). This is a local dive site for me and, at 38 metres on HW, is challenging in that it is deep enough for an air dive but due to the poor vis, can be very dark - all playing into the hand of nitrogen narcosis.
She was a fishing vessel requisitioned by the British Admiralty in WW1 and fitted with a 6 pounder bow gun - this has since been removed, however the stand is still there. This is where the shot is normally found.
The damage due to the collision with another boat can clearly be seen in the inward folding hull plates on the starboard side, aft - one man was lost.
She sits perfectly upright and is mostly full of gravel, shells and silt. She is disintegrating slowly and noticeably every year. Conger ells normally reside under the hull near the bow but they had relocated following the melee of divers who had just left the wreck before my dive started!

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
