100 Years After People: The Esmeralda, of the Chilean navy, now floats free of it's ropes in Valparaíso harbor. Launched in May 1953, it was once the 2nd tallest and the longest sailing ship in the world. But 100 years of water damage and torn sails have weakened it's wood hull. One of the masts punches down into the water, the other masts fail onto each other, and the massive ship sinks into the harbor. The only thing left on the sea bed are the life preservers reading the ship's name, and the Condor from the front of the ship. These may be the last reconizable objects in the Republic of Chile.
