If anyone is interested, the 1929 Shipwreck Sujameco is now exposed at low tide on Horsfall Beach, North Bend/Coos Bay and which is about 2 miles north up the beach from the New Carissa that went aground. See both ships and make it a day.

I mean to get back to this subject the day it was posted but things were busy that day. I didn't know about this.

Now we have 2 shipwrecks about 2 miles apart. Hmmm.... maybe they'll find another one to make it 3. They could name the area shipwreck beach. I can see the tourists waiting to get in line. We are already known for having pirates so why not shipwrecks?

I like a good shipwreck now and then. Haven't dove one in eons.
So, I haven't made my way down the coast very far yet - but hope to do so in summer probably.'
Are these shipwrecks worth seeing? Are they old ships, wood ships or just rusted-cars on the beach?

lol, yeah, giant rusty cans on the beach but still fun to see. They each have their own little interesting stories that you can do a search and read on the net. This particular ship, Sujameco, went aground back in 1929 and the hull only surfaces for a few weeks each early Spring at low tide so it's kind of a hurry up to see thing. As for the New Carissa, well, it's always sticking up.
