THE COOMBE SHALLOW WRECKS

Description:

Small wooden pleasure craft

Owner:

Unknown

Construction:

Both Timber

Sunk:

Unknown

Size:

Underwater:

The first wreck is situated in approx. 12m of water directly below bouy 661 presumably a small pleasure craft. Up until recently it was upright and the wheel house was still intact and made a nice swim through, it has now been pulled over by the mooring and the wheelhouse has collapsed, but it is still a nice easy dive and there is still a lot of life on and around the wreck. The second wreck is in shallower depth of approx.. 9m water and is about 5m South of bouy 221 It is a lot more degraded than the deeper wreck but still has an engine block in the center of the wreck. Visibility is slightly better due to the shallower water and more seahorses can be found around this wreck.
