The sheer size of the vessel is impressive enough until you explore her holds -ripped open by explosion wholes- to find a cargo of military gear: Milford cars, Bedford trucks carrying BSA motorcycles, airplane parts, ammunition, rifles, radios… Boat daytrips are usually organized from Sharm el-Sheikh and planned for two descents (orientation) and (penetration) with the option of a third.
