The wreck, known locally as Gordon’s Wreck’, is orientated in a SSE to NNW direction and sits in a 2-metre scour with the bows to the north. It lies on a seabed of gravel and sand in a general depth of 49 m (LAT). The wreck appears intact, but is upside down and in two halves with a debris field between the two parts. It stands about 5 m high at the bow section and slopes down gradually into the seabed towards the stern. The superstructure has collapsed underneath the hull and there is a small section where access would probably be possible. A boiler has been observed towards the stern and the whole wreck is a myriad of soft corals. Tidal streams are fairly strong and very few fish have been noted. The Otago (Official No. 4344) was an iron-hulled 1437-ton Swedish steam cargo ship measuring 73.5 m in length, with a 10. 23-m beam and a 4.97-m draught. Richardson, Duck and Co. at Thornaby, Stockton built and completed her as Yard No. 291 in October 1882; she was launched as the Carib (Official No. 84642) on 28 September 1882 for Anderson, Anderson and Co. at Stockton. The single iron screw was powered by a 145-nhp two-cylinder compound steam engine that used one double-ended boiler with four plain furnaces and 5.85 sq.m (63 sq. ft) of grate surface. The cylinders measured 73.66 cm and 139.7 cm with an 83.82-cm stroke (29 in. and 55 in. with a 33-in. stroke). T. Richardson and Sons manufactured the machinery at Hartlepool.
