Ship built as transport for the U.S. Navy and configured for 575 crew and 1740 passengers. Her military career took place in the Pacific carrying troops and wounded. At the time of the accident she was travelling from Rio de Janeiro to Vancouver (Canada), under the command of Captain Donald Johnson and governed by the Chilean pilot Ernest Ruiz Muñoz. She hit a reef at SW of Isabel Island, then drifted to Adelaide island where she laid on the starboard side. Shipwreck attributed to a navigational error.

The Strait of Magellan (also called the Straits of Magellan or the Magellanic Strait) is a navigable sea route immediately south of mainland South America and north of Tierra del Fuego. The waterway is the most important natural passage between the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans, but it is considered a difficult route to navigate because of the unpredictable winds and currents and the narrowness of the passage.
