Small boiler still remains and some of the hull, looks like it would be part of the bow but this is not consistant with hydrographic report as above. Bits of wreckage spread all around Fox Cove. Much dries out low water boilers just show on LW Springs. Makes a great snorkel but a bit of a climb down cliffs.

About Builders
 Tyne Iron Shipbuilding Co. Ltd., Willington (N. & S. Shields)
A point of interest: the first 25 ships built by this company, without exception, were all lost at sea or wrecked. Of the first 50 ships built only 3 would see a full life of service and make it to the breakers yard.
