Korean fishing boat abandoned by its owners on the docks of Puerto de la Luz. It is an example of a strange "epidemic" that occurred in Puerto de la Luz and Las Palmas during the last decades of the 20th century, in which numerous ships forgotten by their owners ended their days moored at the docks and became old floating hotels, aspiring to underwater artificial reefs. It went to the bottom in 1979. Due to the depth at which it is found (55 m.), the difficulties in immersion are many.
