323 washed ashore in Nicaragua years ago

This poor baby washed ashore.

Although scavengers have stripped her bare. She shows her strong bones!

Wish he had read out the full HIN. Can't make it out on the video.

I noted a couple of interesting things:
The steering pedestal is mounted all the way forward in the cockpit.
There seems to be an extra hatch on the port side of the cabin roof.
There looks to be a chain hause pipe in the floor of the anchor locker.

A tribute to the mounting of the anchor roller- everything else picked clean!

I'd like to have the (missing) storm hood.

The steering pedestal/binnacle looks far forward...odd.

Yes-  it would be a completely different boat to sail that way.
