Unmarked wreck off Vung Tau, Vietnam

First, for those of you lucky enough to be cruising in south-east Asia, and specifically the approaches to the delightful city of Vung Tau in the Saigon River/Mekong area, we have received a report from a commercial ship master of an unmarked wreck. The wreck - a partially submerged ship - was sighted on 23 Dec 2013 in approximate position Lat. 10-17.7N Long. 107-03.00E. Thus far, no NAVTEX message or T & P notice has been issued about this wreck. Attached is a plot of the wreck's approximate position and a photo taken from the reporting vessel.

All vessels proceeding to Vung Tau should exercise caution when navigating in this area.

(Vung Tau was originally named Tam Thắng = "Three Boats". I guess there's only two now).
