UNDAUNTED

DIRECTIONS:     (Island Beach State Park, Ocean County)
Take the Garden State Parkway to Exit 82 B, Rt 37 East. Stay on Rt 37 over the bridge then bear right at the fork. Continue into Island Beach State Park and Park in section A-12.Take the path over the dunes. The wreck is located 50 feet south of the path.

CONDITIONS:
On December 26, 1913,the 307 foot, schooner barge, Undaunted and another schooner barge, the A.G. Ropes, were being towed by the tug Edgar F. Luckenbach. A fierce Christmas gale was blowing and the captain of the tug decided to cut his tow free. He signaled to Captain Fickett of the Undaunted and Captain Olson of the A.G. Ropes to drop anchor and ride out the storm. Shortly after, both barges were washed into the breakers and pounded into pieces. Unfortunately, all ten crew members perished in the frigid waters. The Undaunted now lies scattered just outside the surf off Island Beach State Park.
