You'll be lucky, a bit of bow and a bit of stern and flat in between apart from the engines.

Sorry to disapoint but you won't need a plan, you can swim between the bow and stern and back its a bit of a swim.


Cheers

Dive Yorkshire 1988 gives a good description;

extract

Most prominent is the bow section which is laid over to port at about 45degrees, and broken off just aft of the focsle. Three seperate decks can be seen and entered though extreme caution must be exercised. There are toilets and showers still in place , with large tiled areas. The bows stand some 9m from the sea bed but aft of this the wreck is much lower and broken up.

The stern section stands almost upright some 5m proud of the sea bed and is partialy buried with neither of the ships propellors showing above the sand and shingle.

There's a bit more info but thats the most important.



Cheers

Hi.
The Pilsudski apart from the lobsters is the most overrated wreck on the east coast.

But I suppose every diver should dive it at least ONCE!.

At least there is something to rummage through on the Somali!.

And it is 78 miles nearer.:teeth:

It sounds like SOLODIVER 2001 wants to join the growing band of divers wanting to dive the East coast wrecks this year from my boat and also Ivon's boat out of Hornsea! , he says he has just put a 200hp Merc on his. Those 40 mile trips should just get interesting......

You will need a tender behind to carry the extra fuel, that will slow you down.

Stick to 25 kts and it wont cost as much, with a *** break at the rigs for quarter of an hour.

Looking out today over the cliffs the shit band seems to be about 1 mile off shore, a bit more settled weather and we will be diving. I have some some extremely interesting wrecks on my list.

I don't think we have any look and take only memories divers on our prospective YD list who are up for virgin wrecks!.....:embarassed:

It should give better economy than the last engine as long as it's not thrashed.

You know I'm still up for mid weeks at the mo so give me a shout when your out.
virgin wrecks ! ! ! are there any left in range out of our part of the east coast ?
Yep, about 18 ;)

Follow the coils of steel wire between the bow and stern, to make sure you don't miss it!

Here's a link, little information though;
