Hey Daroma

The Hey Daroma was a passenger/cargo ship of 1,736 GRT built at Androssan Dockyard (Yard No. 393), Glasgow, Scotland, as the Lairds Loch for Burns & Laird Lines, Ltd., Glasgow in 1944.

On 3rd September 1970 she struck the reef at Nabq, a few miles north of Sharm El Sheikh and became stranded. Several attempts to refloat here were undertaken without success and she finally slipped into the water to a depth of 24m.

She now actually lies under a much bigger wreck which struck the reef in the same place (the Million Hope). Learn more at:  http://dive.im/HeyDaroma
