/ 3

Olaus Olsson, after renaming the SS Ninian Patton, sank on December 3, 1907 after a trip from Antwerp to Helsingborg it was stranded on a sandbank. The crew of 18 was rescued. It is a Swedish steam freighter, which is still in reasonable condition. The SS Ninian Patton is on the keel, no more than 15meters deep. This allows you to dive for a relatively long time on this ship. The shallowness makes the wreck also ideal for beginner wreck divers. The Ninian Patton is almost upright on the bottom, with the bow in a westerly direction.
