We did the Sankisan Maru as a night dive. The ship is ripped up and the stern is crushed in a crater at 40m. I dropped straight into hold 2 behind the king mast where there were trucks and bottles. I then headed into hold 1 which was full of plane engines and munitions. At the bow there was a machine gun laid out and some human vertebrae. I finished the dive by slowly heading up the soft coral-covered mast.
