First published in October 2006 after 9 years of painstaking research, this updated, revised and amended version was possible after a further three years of dedicated examination of the shipwrecks detailed in this work - which rate amongst the greatest in the world. They comprise vessels from the 19th Century such as the Carnatic lost in 1869, right up to those which foundered in the late 20th Century - such as the Million Hope in 1996. They also include the legendary Thistlegorm - easily the world's most visited underwater attraction. There are nineteen major featured shipwrecks - including two which are only recently discovered. Each of these is exposed in minute detail in terms of the ship's history, dimensions, machinery and cargo with the inclusion of whatever historic photographs are available. Then we have an account of that all-important final voyage which provides the reason why each vessel is found where she is today - underwater. Finally, I have included a personal description of each wreck - from stem to stern, as part of my own overall survey of each craft. Because noneA of these wrecks were deliberately sunk as diving attractions, each one has its own very unique story to tell. I have then added much shorter accounts of another twenty three vessels which were too small to be classified as ships - tugboats, barges etc. Whilst not significant shipwrecks in their own right, each of these is still able to provide an enjoyable dive. Finally, I have included the briefest possible details of another 250 ships names which relate to vessels that are either not yet discovered, far too deep, were lost elsewhere in the Red Sea or, in some cases, never even existed...Several important factors set this book apart from other works; Firstly, accuracy of information. Each subject shipwreck has been studied and scrutinised in minute detail to provide the reader with the best possible assessment. Secondly, Rico Oldfield - a marine artist of the highest possible calibre, has illustrated each of the major shipwrecks. So that he could produce artwork of the utmost standard, each of those wrecks was photographed from end to end in order to produce an accurate montage from which he was able work. The result has moved shipwreck guides for scuba divers onto a new and higher plane.
