SS Palo Alto Concrete World War 1 Ship


The SS Palo Alto was a World War I era tanker which actually wasn't launched until 1919, after the cessation of hostilities.  The ship was placed off the coast of Seacliff State Beach on Monterrey Bay in Northern California (about 90 minutes south of San Francisco) in 1929, following which a pier was built linking the ship to the shore to create a small amusement park.  The pier was subsequently dismantled and the ship was damaged by storm.  Currently closed to the public, you can check it out from above in this drone video by travispacheco.
