The Mary D Hume story is some very interesting history about the Oregon coast and its voyages to Alaska. There is much more to read about if you do a little bit of research. One thing that you should know is that there is no way to preserve her and she is fading fast. Each year the water takes a... More

I took a picture of it and told my wife we were buying it to move in! LOL It sits in the Rogue River near the bridge at Gold Beach.

Always have enjoyed seeing this ship. I've taken many photos and loved the history. Worth pulling and learning about it!

The picture does not represent its current state of decay It use to look interesting now just looks like trailer park trash An ugly sight next to a beautiful bridge. Come on Gold beach clean it up it is an eyesore not an attraction replace it with a less ugly example of your coastal history

Originally built in Gold Beach, and well over 100 years old, with a storied career from tug to whaler, she is slowly gong away.

This is just one of many odd and unique roadside attractions along the Oregon Coast. This tugboat sunk at its moorings years ago. It is slowly decaying. It might be worth a quick 5-minute stop to get a photo. It is located on the north end of Gold Beach just after you cross the Rogue River Bridge.

Built in 1881 and retired in 1978, this boat is now fading into the bay. Much more is visible at low tide. Fun to see while waiting to jet boat on the Rogue River!

Not much is left of old Mary but it is still cool to look at. Don't go expecting it to look like the picture above as most of it has deteriorated at this point. But still worth a little peek if you have time to kill before you jump on the Boats.

This old wreck is sitting next to a turn off just off 101 and quick and easy to get to. I can't imagine it will last much longer. Makes a nice picture with the bridge in the background.

Last saw the Mary D. 3 years ago. Golly! She's become a shell of her past and a pile of rubble. She's fading fast and I suspect in another couple of years she may be gone. What a great old dame in Rogue River history. Sorry to see her go!
