My guess is the Avalon. It's obviously a large iron or steel hulled wreck riveted together (note the rivets in the lower RH corner) with overlapping hull plates--this excludes the Palawan and ACE I, that were welded together. On the left we see knees for a deck on every other frame, so the side of the hull is laying flat and the broken deck beams are pointing up. The overlapping hull plate with the rivets seem a little wide for the Moody, so it does not appear to be a tin can.
There are three possibilities that come to mind--the Star of Scotland, the Avalon and the Olympic. The frames or ribs on the Olympic are much wider--about 9" and the growth on the Star of Scotland is much heavier, which leaves the Avalon. It does have the appearance of the Avalon, somewhat spartan with a light growth that reveals a lot of detail. T
he Avalon does seem to have the best year-round visibility. When other sites are blown out, you can usually count on having some fair vis on the Avalon.
