Sunken Ship Newport Dock to be Replaced

Monday, May 17, 2010

According to a May 16 report from the Daily Journal of Commerce, more than 50 years ago, dock builders in Newport sunk two concrete Navy ships in Yaquina Bay and built on top of them. Now the S.S. Pasley has cracked and leaked oil into the bay. Its instability caused port officials to change their plans to rebuild the docks. The Pasley will be removed and a traditional dock will be built in its place. The S.S. Hennebique, a nearly identical 1944 concrete ship, will remain, with a future construction phase adding a dock in front of it.
