The Henry C. Daryaw was a 220 ft long steel freighter that sank in 1941 when she ran upon a shoal between American and Canadian Channels.  The navigator did not see the shoal in a deep fog and Daryaw ran into it striking her bow. The Daryaw flipped upside down while sinking and landed right next to the channel wall with the deepest part at 90ft.

Pleasant tour along ropes on south side up stream to enter three cargo bins from port or south bow. Double props and rudders noted from return loop over bottom to transom then north to buoy rope.
