Shipwreck - Cape May, New Jersey

Just offshore from Sunset Beach in Cape May are the remains of a ship. The S.S. Atlantus was built by the Liberty Ship Building Company and was actually made of concrete. Launched in December 1918, it was used to bring home US servicemen that fought in World War I. It was retired in 1920 to Virginia. In 1926, it was privately purchased to be used as a dock for a proposed ferry. Unfortunately, a storm hit and the Atlantus broke its moorings and ran aground where it is today. Now, it's just a twisted hunk of concrete and rebar poking out of the bay.
