DIVING DESCRIPTION

The gunboat lies evenly on the keel, with a slight tilt to the starboard side, at a depth of 30 meters. Because of the bombs in it, in April 2009 a part of the wreck was blown up by Navy divers, which deprived her of ⅓ length. The part that remains is still worth seeing. Due to the location, strong currents can often be found on the wreck.
