Tasman Hauler

New South Wales

BP Cockburn was a tug boat built by Evans Deakin & Company in Brisbane, and was launched in 1959 for BP Pty Ltd in Fremantle. She changed hands several times during her career, before she hit ground in October 1981 and was laid up until the damaged hulk was bought by Charter Craft & Marine Services in 1983 who renamed her Tasman Hauler. She was scuttled as an artificial reef and dive attraction at Twofold Bay 1. October 1988. The wreck  rest today on her keel like a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 19 to 30 meter south of Red Point at Ben Boyd National Park.
