U.S.S. Atlantus at Sunset Beach

At Sunset Beach on Cape May visitors can see much more than the beautiful beach. Just off shore is the wreck of the U.S.S. Atlantus, one of the concrete ships built during World War I. During this period there was a shortage of steel, so engineers designed and built ships from concrete. This design was not longer used after steel became available after the end of the war. The U.S.S. Atlantus was towed to Cape May, and in 1926 the ship broke loose from its moorings and was grounded during a storm. None of the attempts made to move the ship failed and today visitors can see what is left of the concrete ship at Sunset Beach.
