Description

The 45 foot long tug leeton was scuttled 12 kilometres SSE of Whyalla in the main shipping channel. It is a small but well-known dive occasionally visited by local divers.

The superstructure has been torn off and the hull is draped with prawn nets which can be dangerous. The forward hatch is open and filled with silt. The wreck is subject to extremely strong tidal movement and can only be dived on slack tides. Whiting and snapper can be found over the wreck.
