SS Palo Alto
Seacliff State Beach, Aptos, California

Hooey History:

“The SS Palo Alto was an oil tanker built during World War I on the east side of San Francisco Bay. [Because of] the loss of many ships to German submarines and the high price of steel… [the Palo Alto was made of concrete]. … The construction of the ship went very quickly, [but] WWI ended before it could be put into service. The Palo Alto has been beached since 1930.”
