Hired as an Admiralty Trawler in 1915 this steel hulled 278 Ton Trawler built in 1915 by Jos T. Eltringham & Co struck a mine and sank off of the South Goodwins on the 3 Dec 1915.
She lies at the position given for HMT Cayton Wyke in Dive Kent and the wreck was identified when her bell was recovered., the Cayton Wyke almost certainly lies at the position given in Dive Kent for the U16 as there is an inverted ship with an Asdic pod and .303 ammunition at this location. The U16 is probably the part covered Sub about a ½ mile to the south.
Diving: The wreck is quite intact and stands up to 5m proud in a max depth of 27m, the bow end of the wreck has been blown off and you can enter the wreck here for a swim around the holds which are quite clean and open. The superstructure is relatively intact and this makes for a very interesting dive and the stern is complete. The wreck is very clean and free of nets but can have poor viz due to the proximity of the Goodwin Sands.
