Is this the one that has been sitting on a reef to the west of Paphos for a year or so, or a new one?

Wow - and how on earth did you get enough petrol in the SR to get out there ?

A nifty bit of running aground - close enough to use that handy crane to lift stuff off....

Enjoy ...still dodging thunder and rain here !

Hi, No, but it's just down the road near Coral Bay, near the sea caves. I think George Michael has a house near by.

You can see the large shipwreck from 'The Tomb of the Kings' Paphos, but the one posted here is near to St George I think they are going to try and float it off the rocks.

I think the large wreck near Paphos is too rusty to sink and by the look of things they will try and move this wreck pictured quite soon???

I've got loads more photos so will try and look them out
