Kris,
I couldn't find a precise location for the wreck on any of the dive sites I looked at so, like you, I surmised that her final resting place is either too far offshore and/or it's too deep for normal scuba diving. I was interested to read from Bill's last post that the Lloyds Casualty Report put's the location of her sinking North of Spurn Head. I thought I had lost my reserching skills and/or ability to read a map for a while! Odd that so many sources quote the correct Lat. & Long. and then go on to describe the position of her sinking as "the Thames estuary". Unlike "U" boat sinkings, there are no good web sites recording details of Luftwaffe casualties that I've ever been able to find. Perhaps another member knows better.
Regards,
Alastair
