Site Description The Como is in the second-best condition compared to the other wrecks of the TCRT Express boats.  The hull is intact and upright. All of the superstructure was removed before it was scuttled so is not extant on the site. The forward and aft decks are intact as well as a ventilator cowl on the aft deck and two bits.  Visibility is best under the ice and early spring.  During the season high speed recreational boat traffic makes the site somewhat risky to dive.
