Divesite:

The freighter rests upright and intact in approximately 215 feet of water, with the main deck encountered at 190 feet. The forward portion of the vessel consists of two large vacant holds, each with its own cargo crane on deck that affords an interesting photo opportunity, while the aft superstructure and engine room allows for some interesting exploration. The forward bridge bulk heads have collapsed, which has produced an odd vacant area surrounded on each side by the intact bridge wings. The bow pointing south ward.
