Saint Christopher

El remolcador San Christopher que no termina de morir lentamente en el puerto de Ushuaia. El remolcador llegó a Ushuaia al final de los años 30, en una tentativa infructuosa para rescatar al crucero alemán Monte Cervantes, uno de los primeros barcos turísticos en aventurarse en esta zona de leyenda.

 

Saint Christopher tug, which arrived to Ushuaia to cooperate in the re-floating of the ship Monte Cervantes, owned by the company Hamburgo Sudamericana. On 22nd January 1930, when this touristic vapor ran aground in the middle of Les Eclaireurs islets with approximately 1500 persons on board, the ship Saint Christopher arrived to Ushuaia to re-float it and ended by sinking spectacularly. Simoncini, the company that owned the St. Christopher, decided to leave the ship in Ushuaia.
