La Janelle

La Janelle was a 466 foot, 1,000 passenger luxury liner launched from Quincy, Massachusetts on September 24, 1930. On April 13th, 1970 it was moored outside of the Port Hueneme Harbor, where a storm pushed the ship into shore. Many attempts were made to salvage the ship, however, each failed. The Navy Seabees cut the ship and extended the jetty by placing large boulders around the hull.
