Korean fishing boat wreck

On an exploratory dive last week Miguel’s Dving accidently found a large wreck. It turned out to be a Korean fishing boat that sunk in the 1980s. All valuable and removable metals like the round window hatches and propeller had been removed by salvagers long ago. It sits upright and has a striking profile. Because of its position near a small stream, the surrounding area is basically silt, so it is unlikely that Miguel’s Diving will be offering this as a dive attraction in the future. Sulawesi is not known for its wrecks. However, diving wrecks in Gorontalo is possible. Of the five wreck that Miguel’s Diving has discovered and surveyed over the past decade, only two are offered to divers: the 1942 Japanese cargo wreck and the 1993 Tjenderawashi barge wreck.
