Red Sea: The Carina

The Carina

This is a suggested name given by local fishermen who helped us locate the wreck. From the initial survey and study of photos taken on site, and the encrusting coral growth, it is clear that the wreck is old, similar to the Carnatic and Dunraven, as there are masts as well as boilers and an engine. The wreckage is spread over a wide area in shallow water, 7 meters, and is well dispersed with some parts, namely a large boiler, lying in 15 meters. the bow lies on its starboard side, and the forepeak has bowsprit ring still in place. The hull is of iron and the stern is intact, with rudder, prop and unusual steering yolk assembly.
