|SS Bombo 13-08-11|
August 13 a fine sunny day and Port Kembla was beckoning us. After
the storms and big seas we were interested in what the Bombo looked
like. We anchored easily just off the rear of the engine.
There was a lot of particles in the water making it hard to get decent
pics. I focused on close ups instead. In front of the boiler
the hull has been exposed. There is quite a bit of newly exposed
rusty metal and areas where the hull has collapsed. While Wayne
disappeared forward, I hung around the boiler and engine. Behind the
engine we found what looked like part of a gauge or instrument.
Water temp was a pleasant 17C.
