The Island Wreck Site Underwater And Associated Photographs

Page 8

A lot of information was gained from the anchors. All of the anchors had coral growth over them, covering parts of the anchor palms or shank. Interesting the metal eating sea urchins had not attacked them, like the cannons. It was also great to see the drop off and see how the ship had smashed into the reef destroying the staghorn coral which never re grew back there.
