High-resolution multibeam sonar image of P.L.M. 27 shipwreck. Shallower features shown in yellow, deeper objects in blue and purple. The bow of the ship is on the left, the stern on the right. Extensive torpedo damage is obvious amidships, with iron ore spilling onto the seafloor. The six rectangles are the cargo holds loaded with iron ore. This is the shallowest shipwreck of the four off Bell Island. This wreck is 122 metres long.
