Awesome!

Thanks so much for this. I have wondered about that wreck for 60 years. The "old salts" used to call it the whaleback. I thought it was just because that is what it resembled. Apparently at least some of them knew what it was: a whaleback tanker.
Thanks again for posting! Tight lines.

"Denbigh lies today in shallow water on the north side of Bolivar Roads. The wreck is not far from Fort Travis, a post-Civil War fortification that is now a county park. The wreck is ordinarily underwater, but on rare occasions, when the tide is extremely low, the upper parts of the sidewheels and some machinery are visible above the surface "

From that description, I reckon the Denbigh is registered in the AWIOS as the wreck located at 29.36414, -94.743942

We used to get out of our boat and walk around on the "concrete ship", fishing for flounder. I don't think you can walk on it any longer?

Knocked it out of the park, Erlbon. Very, very neat Texas history you found, thank you for sharing.

My dad and I used to fish this wreck when I was a kid forty years ago. You can't really see it anymore unless it's a super low tide. There is a pole marking it's location. I never knew this wrecks name. More cool info! This wreck is inside the jetty, while the whaleback is outside of it.
