Hi,

On Flickr is a hazy photo of a Liberty ship stuck on a reef in the Red sea, it is captioned 'High and dry on reef' and the photo was taken in 2005. Does anyone know more about this wreck

Cheers

Hi Al,
I think this ship is not a liberty-ship, but the un-lucky panamean TAMARA II which went aground March 10th 1983, in position 2749,5'N and 03340,0'E, during a voyage from Varna to Mogadiscio.
PAN / 1960 - Helsingborg / 8562 grt / IMO 5018064 / Launched as ANJAN (Swe)
