The 366' ship settled on her port side (~90o).  The deck at the stern is 50-60' deep, at the superstructure is about 80' and at the bow is 90-100'.  The bottom at the stern is about 80', at midship is about 110', beneath the guns is about 140' and the bow hangs over a ledge.  Large, yellow cautionary buoys (X) are attached to the ship at the stern, mid-ship and bow.  Orange and white mooring cans (X) are attached to the ship just forward of the superstructure and mid-mortar bay.
