The Koho Maru-5 tanker sank first Aug 25, 1996, 50 kilometers west of Koh Chang. It was named Vertical wreck cos of its wired position (from 5m to 60m deep).
Due to the danger of this wreck in shipping lanes, it was moved in 2003 by the Thai Navy. It's no longer a vertical wreck, and the viz is quite low at this new position (between 1 and 15m) under the cline.
