Truly an amazing wreck. The masts were removed, but the remainder of the ship is pristine with an intact bowsprit. The depth is more accurately 120 feet so dive plans should be adjusted accordingly. It typically has good visibility due to the presence of very cold water below 85 feet in the range of 39 to 41 degrees Fahrenheit.
