Iron Steam Launch

The Pinafore rig is listed as a steam launch. While being towed up Bay by the steam tug Amy, the Pinafore began shipping water in strong sea. Bailing was ineffectual, so Captain Wilkins stopped Amy's engines to allow Pinafore's crew to board for safety. Just as Pinafore ranged alongside a heavy sea broke over the vessel, causing it to founder head first.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
