Gertrude - DEPTH 14m
Another victim of fog, this vessel foundered on rocks close to Portland Bill on the 26th August
1894. The ship is still partially on the slope of boulders down which she slide as she sunk. Her
boiler, which has fallen out from the starboard side, lies 4m away from the wreckâ€™s side, and it
easy to recognise. Her bows are on the kelp line at 6m. To be found around the stern at 14m
are masses of steel plates and a rudder with a blade of her propeller sticking out of the sea bed.
The shipâ€™s anchor lies a short distance off the port side. Marine life is in abundance on this
