Cartegena, Colombia to Paulsburo, New Jersey.Built: 1955Sunk: December 30 1958Length: 590 ft. x  74 ftPowered by 2 steam turbines  All the men aboard were rescued.The owners sold their claim so the wreck was considered un-owned,thus locals took what they could from the ship. Eventually, a storm ripped off  the bow section and carried it over a mile away. A tug was able to tow the stern to dry-dock but the bow was never recovered and lies upside down in the sand, a home to large lobster and fish.
