THE TANKER WRECKS NEAR RAS BANAS

THE TANKER WRECKS NEAR RAS BANAS

Credit for the discovery of this wreck goes to the then Skipper of Lady M., “Ahmed the Crazy”. They called it the half wreck because it consisted of a stern and superstructure and one very large hold. At first we thought this was the Hadia, which had been described as a tanker in some records, but entering her engine room revealed a large single triple expansion steam engine, not a diesel as in the Hadia. Inside the engine room a plate with R.C. Craggs embossed and a works number would if fact prove to be something of a red herring in her identification, but without this knowledge to hand we set about looking for the missing section of the ship; the other half in fact. We were to search in vain…the bow lies in deep water somewhere to the north.
Initial research from the makers plate pointed to the Atlas, which had been built by Craggs, and although this ship was reported to have been torpedoed off the Yemen.
