Wk stands 3 to 4 metres in 24 metres.

The Thesis lies in a very tidal area of the Sound of Mull, Scotland. The wreck is lies upright from 20 to 32m on a slight slope with the bow higher than the stern. Hull plating on the bow area is missing leaving large gaps that can be swum through by divers. Covered in Plumose anemones and other wreck life. The wreck is still very much recognisable as a ship.
