While she laid at anchor, her moorings broke under a storm and she was severely damaged. She was deliberately scuttled as an artificial reef at Long Ledge Island 4. April 2001, and rest today on her keel on a depth of 9 to 18 meter. Also see the wrecks of RFA Darkdale, Frontier, Papanui, Portzic and Spangereid.
