First dived by Sydney Project divers in 2006, originally thought to be iron ore carrier Iron Knight, but further dives revealed a different vessel. Identity remained a mystery for a long time, but the wreck has now been identified as the Coast Farmer.

The ship is equipped with a British 12 pounder gun, and was measured 90m long.
