SS Elingamite Shipwreck is something I have been having a look at when the talk of a dive trip to the Three Kings came up recently on here.
Its quite an interesting location and undoubtedly an interesting dive...

Doesn't Neil, who used to own Stirlings Dive on Dominion Rd, own the rights to the Elingamite or something?
