Wreck Description: Blown ashore in a storm in 1880, there is still surprisingly a bit left. The bow post comes up about 5 metres, there is a good sized anchor on her, the winches etc. can all be seen also. Cray have been seen on this wreck, and if you dig around, you can find bottles etc. also. Quite a good dive, on the way back from KI.
