Steam Trawler

The ‘Seam Trawler’ is the mysterious wreck of a 98ft (30m) long by 31ft (9.5m) wide ship which lies broken into two parts on the seabed under 16 m of water. It is situated approximately five miles off Shoreham, 50° 44.79’ N 0° 11.37’ W. It is in reasonable condition with rudder and propeller intact; the bow has toppled onto the starboard side exposing the engine room. The surrounding seabed is of soft sediment and easily disturbed.
