Sank in 1904, The Primrose was a steel-hulled fishing trawler and lies in 30m of water. 

It today lies a few hundred meters off the west coast of the May Island, intact but collapsed with the highest parts being the boilers standing a few meters high.

A good wreck for large cod, conger and ling hiding under the horizontal plates. Slack water or small tides are required for this one or you end up doing a flag impersonation in a force 9 so avoid Jerry Springers (spring tide floods and ebbs). Average viz would be 5 to 7m, however, we have had 25m which was quite unforgettable!
