A possible wreck is visible as a structure on aerial photographs between 1963 and 1964, apparently eroding out of the foreshore. Its visible length is 10 metres with a width of circa 4.5 metres, with one end not exposed. The structure may have become temporarily visible after a severe weather event, and has presumably been covered back over, possibly by sand eroding from the shoreline.
