Rotomahana – Sunday 20th January 2013

Divers:  Michael, Vinnie, Simon, Sherryn, Mick, Barb, Mike & Mark

Unlike the majority of the wrecks from the graveyard that were Bay Dredges, the Rotomahana was a passenger/gargo vessel. Built in Scotland in 1879, with a clipper bow & a carved figurehead of a Maori Princess she was the finest ship on the Tasman. The dive conditions on the day certainly did this dive justice, 30 plus metre viz, no swell and sunshine above. We descended on the starboard bow, swam towards the boilers and turned back towards the bow, there is certainly a lot to see on the Roto and we could only cover about 1/3 of the ship on this dive. That leaves us plenty to see on our next trip!
