Wow ! Was she ever removed or did she fade away on this beach ?

This is the wreck of the tanker Antipolis at Oudekraal, South Africa. At the time of her grounding on 28 July 1977 she was one of two tankers, the other being Romelia, under tow of the tug Kiyo Maru 2 from Greece to Taiwan breakers when the tow parted. The same fate awaited the Romelia - her tow parted later and she was wreked further along the coast.

A casualty surely ?
