She is laying on the shoal on her starboard side. the bow with the wheel house is in about 25 feet of water, the propeller is at about 115. Cargo holds are open and accessible, there is a lot of rigging strewn about that can be dangerous. There is a good current on the surface. Mooring buoys are available. She is on the south side of the shipping channel just upstream from Singer castle.
