Una imagen, un sueño! gran foto!
This is all that remains of the Panamanian Cargo Ship named Asia Carrier 1.
It appears to have smashed into the reef on 11th November 1980. The ship was 460 feet long with a beam of 60 feet. The ship had a gross tonnage of 7114 tons. It was carrying 4551 tons of scrap iron from Kuwait to Chittagong and was sailing under a Filipino Master. After the ship was wrecked, For 3 months, attempts were made to refloat her but even dynamiting the reef failed. Many local people then looted her and broke her up for scrap leaving just the 9 Cylinder Diesel Engine, (in the picture). I also photographed this wreck in the year 2000 whilst visiting my friend Sir Arthur C. Clarke in Sri-Lanka following the Tsunami.
