Directions: Popular fishing ground named Clarries, Grant from Smuggler Charters has the marks, approx 14kms off West Beach.
Wreck Description: There are actually two wrecks here, a 40ft fishing trawler, and an iron structure, of similar size. No-one seems to know anything about what the boat is, when it was sunk etc... but judging by the growth, my guess is between 10-15years. The structure, again, no-one knows what it is, it is approximately 5 metres high, 10 metres wide, and 15 metres long, has ladders etc. on it, and looks like the superstructure of a ship. Fish life is pretty good, there is a reasonable amount of growth on the wrecks too. Good weather is needed to dive it, due to its distance from shore.
