Locate the remains of the Vessel Tucapel which ran aground on the coast of Peru in 1911.My grandfather Capt Frederick Collins went down with his ship as Captains should do. The location is 16*38'S 72*46' W.The remains were visible until 5 years ago when a Tsunami carried them into deeper water. A book has been written siting the valor of local fishermen who went to rescue passengers and perished as well as the conduct of my grandfather in the rescue operation.
