The EGERIA, captained by M. H. Foster and owned by L. Young & Co., was 95 days out from London, bound for Callao in Peru, with 23 crew, and a cargo of cement and coal when she ran into trouble trying to round the Horn. She put into Stanley for repairs on 12th September 1872 but was condemned. The EGERIA was fully roofed in corrugated iron at her deck level and was used the next thirty years as a floating storage hulk in the harbour. She was an unusual sight having what appears to be a two-storey house erected on her deck immediately behind her foremast. In 1907 she was beached at the Falkland Islands Company’s East Jetty to the north of the SNOW SQUALL and WILLIAM SHAND. Like many wooden vessels in Stanley Harbour, the EGERIA was subject to worm and rot. Her sternpost eventually fell victim to that decay in June 2009, causing her stern section to collapse by nearly two metres. It has since been removed.
