has a reputation of one of the premier wreck sites in the Red Sea and beyond. The
reputation is well deserved - it has storied past; her size is absolutely huge (longer
than 400 ft) and impresses you immediately as you descend. She has all kinds of goodies
including complete trucks and munitions tored in her holds. Tanks and guns decorate her
decks. Unfortunately, due to her world fame, she is so overcrowded that diving her could

on her at , so that we could explore the holds w/o bumping into people.
Highlights include: gunwales with a cargo
of supplies destined for the British Fifth Army; armoured Bren-Gun Carriers; BSA
Motorcycles; jeeps, trucks; aeroplane parts; stacks of rifles; radio equipment, munitions,
and a plentiful supply of boots. Also lots of fish, sich as barracudas as well as
Hazards include depth (120+ ft to the
bottom), occasionally strong current and scores of other divers in the holds.
