A 25 meter fishing vessel caught illegally fishing in Northern Territory waters. The boat was cleaned with money donated by Conoco Phillips to the Darwin's Amateur Fishing Association and eventually scuttled close to the Song Saigon and the Ham Luong to expand the existing artificial reef.
The vessel lies on its port side intact on the bottom the 2 forward holds are open and you can look inside with the aid of a torch. The vessel has already started to attract fish life and will continue do so . The wheel house and quarters can be seen through existing windows and doors with the use of a torch. The vessel already has a lot of silt laying in and on it and when stirred up can reduce the visibility to virtually nothing.
