Shipwreck in Ushuaia Harbor Argentina
The wreck of the Saint Christopher (HMS Justice) aground in the harbor of Ushuaia, Argentina. The Sain Christopher is an American-built rescue tug that served in the British Royal Navy in World War II. After the war she was decommissioned from the Royal Nay and sold for salvage operations in the Beagle Channel. After suffering engine problems in 1954, she was beached in 1957 in Ushuaia's harbor where she now serves as monument to the shipwrecks of the region. The snow-capped mountains in the distance are across the Beagle Channel in Chile.
