Rating: ****

I started the dive by dropping onto the bow. The wreck is very broken up and at the large frame at the bow the bow gun has fallen onto the starboard side of the wreck. We headed down the starboard side and around the intact brass prop. I swam through overhangs and on into the engine room. There was some nice soft coral decorating the wreck and lots of small fish life.
