The ship is in approximately 110 fsw, or feet salt water. The shipwreck is largely broken up, but the bow and a structure known as the "hospital" are still recognizable. The ship was on the United States lend-lease program and was filled with many war supplies such as Valentine tanks, P-39s and vast amounts of ammunition.
