 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English):  The Nebo lies upside down in 18-27m of water. Her stern is fairly intact but the bow and midships is quite broken up. The propeller was damaged in the grounding and the blade can still be seen on the Shoal in the Pinnacles area. The stern is home to a large variety of fish and also has a swim through below the propeller. The boilers are visible in the midships area as are the cargo of railway girders. There is a large debris field on the port side.
