Wreck Description: Suction Dredge, fairly intact sitting upright on sandy seabed. Penetration in bow, through square hatch but beware of the fine sand that has built up inside forming sand dune appearance. It silts out very easy so good bouyancy is a must. Has one other very small exit on starboard side. On the deck you will find WC if you feel you need to go. Big suction pipes are in the main hold running up the middle connect to pumps & wheels etc. Go over the stern to see the twin props Very pretty wreck with 2 levels to check out.
