 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): There is very little left of her save for the engine block, keel, beams and steel plates. Home to some rather huge crayfish and quite a lot of baitfish. The area from the North pier to the Umgeni River is a marine sanctuary, hence the large crayfish. Maximum depth is 8m and it is very seldom clean.
