Henry C. Daryaw
1226 Wellington Street West,
Ottawa ON K1Y 3A1
This 219 ft. x 35 ft. x 13 ft. steel freighter built in France in 1919 suffered an unforgiving gash on her starboard side running over a shoal. The bow area has a number of items of interest to divers and many enjoy a visit up to the keel of the Daryawand do a “keel walk”. This area lets you view the gash in her bottom that sent her to her fate.
Located upstream from the Brockville “narrows”, the Daryaw rests upside down at a depth of 95 ft. with a very quick surface current. Divers are continually impressed with the large twin props and rudder that meet them as they descend the buoy line.
