So I completely know this is not in Wildwood, but I find it so cool considering it is right next to Wildwood in Cape May.
We all have heard of the concrete ship (aka SS Atlantus) but not many of us know what she looked like when she was beached there.
The SS Atlantus is one of the twelve concrete ships built for World War I.
She was built out of concrete due to the low cost and because they were fast to build. The SS Atlantus was finished a month after WWI ended but she was used to transport troops back to the United States.
I will go into more detail when I do a full blown article about the SS Atlantus, but for now lets jump to June 8 1926. She was ripped off her moorings and ran aground at Sunset Beach, Cape May.
Multiple attempts took place to rescue her ending in failure.
Check out this rare video of the ship, one year after it was beached.
