Does anyone know if any dives have ever taken place on the wreck of the yarmouth castle? And does anyone know where I can find information about the ship?

S,

This is interesting, but I think you have your castles wrong.

The YC was not a Union Castle ship. It was a cruise ship of the Yarmouth Shipping Co. It sailed between Miami and Nassau when it met its firey end.

It also used to be called Evangeline and sailed between Boston and Yarmouth, NS. (hence name). It was built in USA in the 1920's.

You are right, of course, about the Lightfoot song.
