Tung Hwang


Fuso Kaiak KK was a general cargo ship built by Onomichi Zosen in Japan, and was launched in 1966 for the company Fuso Kaian. She changed owners and names a couple of times before she sailed as Tung Hwang for Orient Dolphin Corporation in Panama in 1980. Under a journey from Kaohsiung to Brunei loaded with cement, she hit ground at Samarang Bank 25. September 1980. She developed a leak and sat course for Labuan but foundered and sank not long after. The wreck which is often referred to as "The Cement Wreck", rest today on her keel like a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 18 to 33 meter east of Kuraman Island.
