I believe that's the wreck of the French steamer 'Agen', wrecked on the South Goodwin Bank in 1952.
38 men were rescued by the Walmer lifeboat, the coxwain and mechanic of which were awarded medals for bravery.

Aha Thanks Bruce' Looking at this photograph I see a nice boat on the starboardside of the after part....think I may have cut the lashing and just sat in it...but maybe not.
regards Dick.
