The Mohegan was a 6889 ton steamship that was on voyage to New York from London. It's heading past Cornwall was just a couple of degrees north and it ended up hitting Vase Rock on the Manacles at full speed, it lost it's rudder and crashed onto the rocks known as the Voices (Maen Voes). Over 100 people including crew and passengers lost their lives on the 147m long ship.Over the years it has had a lot of salvage work done, even the engine was salvaged. It lies quite broken but is huge and it takes a long time to swim from one end to the other. Most boats drop their shotlines around the boilers, they are huge and easily spotted on the sounder.There are actually four boilers, it looks like three boilers but one is two small boilers back to front. It is surrounded by rocks of the Manacles which are covered in anemones and corals. The wreck itself is a haven for life and you can see just about everything you could expect to see in the U.K.
