Sunk by U-35 at 37* 42.5'N, 00* 38'W is about all I can add to the above.

Hi everybody,
my name is Volker and I am a Member of the Deep Impact Explorer team and we located this wreck (and the wreck of the Wilmore/Atlantic) some weeks ago and finally been able to dive on it two days ago. The ship is resting upright at a depth of 88m. The deck is around 76-78m. We will dive there again in the next weeks to shoot some photos and also video. I will maybe post some pictures here or but them on our web site for people who are interested.

Welcome aboard, Volker.
I'm sure the crew will be interested in your pictures when you post them.
Enjoy the voyage.
