Open Hatch

The ROV Hercules peers into a hatch on the deck of Eregli G.  The deck is cluttered with timbers and lines some of which were part of the ship’s original rigging, and some of which appear to be fishing gear which became entangled in the wreck.  The rigging indicates that Eregli G was a sailing ship; no evidence of a steam engine was found.
