The Carnatic

The Carnatic was as a 1,776 GRT steam-powered wood-on-iron constructed Clipper Ship

The Carnatic lies at the base, and parallel to, the Sha’ab Abu Nuhas reef at a depth of 18-27 meters. When the ship sank, she had broken into two sections. When the ship settled on the bottom, the two halves settled nearly back together!
