 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): The Oakburn (a British Cargo steamer), was wrecked in bad weather in 1906. Interestingly, in 1994, the Boss, a crane barge, snapped its towline and happened to land right on top of the Oakburn. An interesting dive and fascinating to imagine the heap remaining was once a mighty ship! Railway lines, boilers and her engine still remain.
