PARK CITY

The steam powered wood hulled tugboat Park City was built in 1898. She was 143 feet long had a 28foot beam and displaced 391 gross tons.

On August 8, 1951 the Park City was en-route from New York to Houston, TX when she hit a submerged object. The wood tug sunk quickly a few miles south of Manasquan Inlet NJ. Two of her crew were drowned in the accident. Others were rescued by a fishing boat nearby. The Park City was quickly determined to be a hazard to navigation and was wire dragged.

Today the Park City's remains can be found in 60 feet of water. Her wreckage is scattered and low lying.
