According to Ron YoungÍs book this deep wreck is the Maystone, it would be worth a look as the sonar image seems to suggest a fairly intact wreck. The British cargo ship Maystone SS sank after a collision with the aircraft carrier Albion during a gale on October 18th, 1949. She was about four miles E. of Longstone Light on a voyage from Methil to London carrying a cargo of coal. The Albion saved four of the crew and these were the only survivors.
