Just peeking out behind the wave you can see the top of the Clan Stuart wreck. This photo was taken just after a large storm, at spring high tide. Here’s another photo of Mackerel Bay, the not very obvious bay where the Clan Stuart lies in only 12 metres of water. With a wave like this, a shore entry would be out of the question.

Mackerel Bay seems to be the site of a proposed residential and commercial development of terrifying scale…
