Also, in this photo, the lettering that could say "CAR FEE" can be made out of the front of the pilothouse:

As the FEEDERMATE, the same location was stenciled with the lettering "CAR FEEDER":

I can provide more detail now that I'm not posting from a mobile device.
Looking closely at the following image, I can clearly make out the three letters "LAA" welded into the hull, along with what look like an "NA" shortly before them, and what could be a string of letter prior to that:
That name corresponds with that of the HAJJEH NAELAA, IMO 6423917, a former German-built vehicle carrier that was converted into a livestock vessel in 1993, and was listed as "existence in doubt" as of 2010.
The most recent image of the vessel, as FEEDERMATE, shows the raised cargo compartment seen on this vessel ( In addition, various facets of the vessel match very closely, including:
Anchor housing recess
Forward hull form
Recess for bit access at the bow
Pilothouse window layout
Doubled sheet metal at the bridge wings
Circular opening above the port-most bridge window
Integrated mast and stack
Window and door w/window looking out at bridge wing from pilothouse
Single door w/window and double windows aft of pilothouse

For pilothouse details of the wreck, see here:

My earlier suggestion of a vessel named MOWAFAK (IMO 5159117), the former LADY SOUAD, is clearly incorrect. There is a fleeting resemblance between the vessels, but enough details vary that they are obviously not the same.

Kind Regards, Kyle

Indeed you didn't Pieter.
Unfortunately the photocomment to which I was replying on that point has been self-deleted, making the sequence incoherent.

@davidships: it was not me that did put IMO 5159117 as former LADY SOUAD to this vessel, I only pointed out a useful website.

David, I have to agree, there's a superficial resemblance, but enough obvious differences that it's definitely not the one.

I think I've found a better candidate, the German-built vehicle carrier AGENOR, IMO 6423917, which was converted to a livestock carrier. Her last registered name was HAJJEH NAELAA, and looking closely at the wreck gallery, the letters "NA_LAA" can be made out welded into the bow. She was fittingly deleted in 2010 for "existence in doubt."

That's a very helpful gallery, Pieter, helping get a clearer picture of this bundle of wrecks.

But this livestock carrier doesn't look to me like a conversion from the LADY SOUAD (IMO 5159117) in Malcolm's uploading the forwad hull form seems quite different).

Easier to compare with how MUAFAK was six years ago before the funnel/mast fell off:

She was a livestock carrier, see this website for more pic's in that area:
