The ship was dark and fractured, its surface scarred from decades of corrosion. On the port side, a terminal rupture traced an uneasy path from the deck to the hull. There was an opening next to it – and it was just large enough for a person to pass through.

Of course, it is highly unsafe to explore shipwrecks without adequate training, equipment and support. Both above and below the surface, innumerable sharp, rusty edges threaten serious injury and impalement. Worse yet, shipwrecks can be extremely fragile – the slightest nudge in the wrong place can cause anything or everything to come crashing down.
