I'll bet there's a few blokes up there, seeing this this morning

 ...cursing. secret spot found.  My bet would be an illegal fishing vessel, went down without sending out a signal by suddenly foundering. Dimensions seem to match your typical long-distance asian FV.

looks like a small freighter

could be and indo vessel but looks quite modern in terms of whats on the deck - could be a small freighter
- hard to tell obviously but I would say that image is looking from the stern to the bow - the bow on a freighters if often raised and that spike is possibly a davit - looks like there are large bins/boxes prior to the davit

pretty cool find and I am guessing there would be a few good fish knocking around that!

 37 meters is pretty small, average size of a harbour tug or a bit larger than a cray boat
