A Look at the USS Atlantus Concrete Ship in 1927
Anyone who has traveled to Sunset Beach in Cape May has seen the wreck of the USS Atlantus, a concrete ship that ran aground in the summer of 1926 following a big storm. If you have ever wondered what that ship originally looked like, here's a really cool video.
With a tip of the hat to wildwoodvideoarchive.com, video has been posted online that shows crews trying to free that ship about a year after it wrecked.
According to concreteships.org, the USS Atlantus was 250 feet long and weighed about 5 million pounds.
