An Australian table says ship was loaded iron ore en route Sepetiba to Las Palmas.

There would be no reason to take iron ore to Las Palmas. Guessing ship was beached in the Canaries to prevent sinking. But we dont know. Dont even know date.

This is probably Ferguson Ship 53 for which he says "side shell fracture".
