Previously a rescue tug for the British Navy during World War II, the St. Christopher was sold for salvage operations in the south of Argentina. It then suffered engine problems and was ultimately beached in 1957 on the shore of Ushuaia, in the Beagle Channel in southern Argentina. The ship is now one of many that have been abandoned in the Ushuaia harbor. Many photographers love to try an capture a photo of the wreck as the sun is setting, as the fading light illuminates the ship most stunningly. It is also illuminated in the evening.
