This is a paddle steamer built at the end of the 1800s. Towards the end of its life it was used as a barge to ferry coal out to the battleships moored within the harbour. In 1935 it was blown from its moorings and ended up wrecked against the breakwater wall where it remains. It sits upright on a silty seabed with empty holds that you can swim in and out off. Excellent training site but watch the silt.
