Walsa

Brazil,South America

Walsa was a tug boat built by Maclaren in Rio De Janeiro, and was launched in 1968. She served for the company Industria Agencia de Navegação - Wilson Brothers as a harbor tug for decades, until she was decommissioned in the 1990's. She was then rigged down and prepared to be scuttled as an artificial reef outside Pernambuco. She was the 10th vessel in line to be scuttled in the maritime park, and disappeared in the deep about ten nautical miles outside Recife 28. May 2009. The wreck rest today standing on her keel like a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 30 to 42 meter.
