From the attitude of the wreck she was driven ashore at full speed with her rudder straight. There appears to have been no time or need? to avoid the grounding. She is bow down into the reef in 10 mtrs of water her bow broken up and her starboard plates scattered around the seabed. The letters A-N-D, U, and J, easily discernable on the scattered plates were a great help in confirming her identity The bow section was easy to access although the inside was a mass of confused and torn steel. Here a large shoal of golden hatchets has taken up residence. Her hull side plates, which formed the main structure of her holds have all collapsed and form a tangled jungle of steel with large girders, pies and flanges. Her superstructure, partly flooded was accessed via the aft bulkhead, allowing access into the engine room, generating plant, workshops and accommodation area. The sea bed was littered with many interesting items, such as riding lights complete with lenses, and her anchor light still stood proud on its mast.
