Built in 1919, this concrete oil tanker was in service for less than a year before it hit a jetty. The damage proved to be too costly to repair so it was parked here to retire. It found new life during Prohibition when the Feds used it to dispose of over 11,000 bottle of liquor. The ship can only be reached by boat. A good view can be obtained by riding the Galveston-Bolivar Peninsula Ferry.
