One big schooner with a lot to see. The bow contains a very large
windlass, anchors, and belaying pin laden fife racks. The bowsprit is
missing. The deck is littered with masts and rigging. At the stern,
the cabin lies collapsed and ajar on the deck. It over hangs the port rail
a bit. Evidence of the integrity of those who dive her, several artifacts
are displayed here. The wheel is in place and looms massive. The yawl lies
on the bottom at the port, aft corner. Another breath taking dive. Plan
