by a crew of six.
During a squall on a voyage to Brockville, her cargo shifted, and she hit a rock. After taking on water, she sank off Sparrow Island on August 5, 1877.
She lies 9 m underwater, upside down on the north slope of Sparrow Island, one of the City of Brockville islands.
Divers may approach the wreck site from the buoy upstream and exit by the downstream bay of the island. At depths from 9 to 26 m, this site is considered an advanced-level boat dive.
Henry C. Daryaw
GPS: 44° 31.566' N. 75° 45.755' W.

The "HENRY C. DARYAW" was a steel-hulled freighter, measuring 67 m long and having a beam of 11m. She was built in France in 1919.
On November 21, 1941, the DARYAW was making her way through the ships' crossover area near Long Beach, 9 km west of Brockville. She struck a shoal that gashed into her starboard side. Despite attempts to salvage her, the Henry C. Daryaw slipped and sank to the bottom of the shoal.
The remains of this ship lie upside down at a depth of 17 to 26 m. Divers are able to peer and shine lights through numerous port holes without actually entering the ship. Penetration of this wreck is not recommended.
Recent increased visibility makes this an enjoyable dive. The twin props and rudder are exposed and make for good underwater photography.
This is considered an advanced-level dive by boat access only, at depths up t[o] 26 m in a strong current.
All marine archaeological sites in Ontario are protected under the Ontario Heritage Act. It is illegal to alter or remove artifacts from any site. All violators will be charged by provincial law enforcement.
