Opportunity for two FTF
1. Access by land Congratulations to FoxesDownUnder for FTF by land access
2. Access by sea...seeking a FTF via sea. Not that difficult in good sea conditions.Congratualtions to jakeleonard and Dad for FTF via sea access. Great photos as well

I have made repairs to the container . I hope everyone who makes the effort to visit finds the treasure.
I discovered it is a tight fit the first level so look in the second level from the top. A torch could helpful.
