divers and fisherman.
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
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.
