The wreck is about 100 feet from shore and just even with the tree line on the east side of Fish Point.  Since she burned to the waterline, only a small section of her transom remains on the hull.  However, more of the hull may be buried in the sand bottom. 
A barrel-like object closed at one end, is probably part of her boiler.  To the east of this is a circular object about 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet high.  Many pipes and metal parts litter this shallow site.  Between the effects of winter ice and salvage efforts, this site is largely a debris field running north and south.
Expect 8 to 10 feet of visibility.  In the late summer, this shallow site may be heavily covered in weedy marine growth.
