The Kensho Maru is another beautiful wreck in Truk Lagoon.

This 36m deep, 116m long 4,862 ton passenger-cargo ship “lies” upright and leans slightly  to port.

She also sank during “Operation Hailstorm” in WW2.

There are many artifacts on board such as medical tables, bottles, plates, binoculars and a sextant.

The helm, cabins and galley are all very interesting.

But, the engine room is best, with all the engines and boilers still in “good” condition. (Not working condition,  photographically speaking)

One dive was not enough, we could have dived a couple of times on this wreck.
