Wreck Description: FV Melissa was a timber scallop trawler which burnt to the water line while scalloping off Curtis island. Not much left of her but defiantly worth a look due to the awesome fish life and the darkest, meanest looking Qld Groper I have ever seen. Vis is usually a lot better than 15 mtrs have seen 30 to 40 mtrs on this dive.
