The Dominator lies off Pt. Vicente in a shallow area with heavy kelp. Despite its recent wrecking, the Dominator’s hull has long ago been pounded into smaller pieces. All that remains of her hull is the forepeak of her hull which was thrown up on the beach. Her triple-expansion engine remains upright and breaks the surface of the water during low tide or high surf’/swell. A few large pieces of the wreck remain, some of which have recognizable features, such as those shown below.
