Other comments:  As its pretty murky down there your best bet is to fin out to the large black mooring bouy next to the red one or surface after a while to check you position, follow that down to the bottom about 9 meters,And if you follow the shoreline along to the right of your entry point from the bouy the Charna is about 10 meters or so away from the mooring that she broke,

Dive Report: Dingerbot 16/5/12 We finned out to check a spot for a mooring, and since we were not too far away from the mooring she was on we finned out to the bouy and down we went to about 9 meters, my buddy had a hunch that she would be north east of the mooring and sure enough there she was,
