well I just dont believe it. we dived the new wreck yesturday and instead of it laying on soft sand(as expected) it's on a hard rubbly bottom!! i was convinced there was not hard bottom in the that area and the hull lands smack bang on it!!!!,( thanks for the that front mooring chain snapping.
see poop happens to me for a good reason.)

the extent of the hard bottom is unknown but it's at least 10-20 metres either side of the hull position. there's even a massive steel plate near by , presumably left over from the tippers sinking project.

so Shane, it did end up leaning over a bit as the keel had more influence than the outrigger, it would have been different if it went onto a softer sea floor.

but hard bottom is good and the hull has snappers all over it, resident mother in laws, medium blue bone and a few juvinile trout. and of course the ever present bat fish!!!

bring on the calm sea's.

Defiantly some life on it! iv fished it twice in the last 2 weeks and here is a bit of a list. Goldies, Cod, GT's, Bronze Whalers, Hammer Heads, Grunter, Bat Fish, Smilers, Blue Bone and a few other species i cant remember. I had counted up to 11 so far. so it just goes to show how quickly they can find it!
