Thanks for posting your photos. It *is* great to finally be certain of the spelling, and it must have been pretty cool back when there was more left of it.

Below is what it looks like now. The stern is at the top of the slope, the bow at the bottom. It's laying on its starboard side. Nothing is left but the hull, and even then, there is a large hole up high on the port side, large enough to swim through.

I've been diving for about 20 years, and as far as I recall, the wreck has looked like this. The superstructure must have gone away pretty quickly. Maybe it was removed for boat traffic, maybe it fell off and went a little deeper and I've never noticed it.
