The ship itself has seen much better days. But the story on the wall is very interesting and historic.

I have been watching this great old boat for a number of years (back when it looked like it could be salvaged) and unfortunately it is about at its end.

If this is a tourist attraction, I highly recommend the trash dumpsters behind the fence! What an embarassment..

Have watched the de-evolution of this boat wreckage over the years, cool. If you want to see it before it completes disintegrates get there sooner than later. The cabin has caved in.

Saw this on the way to eat at the Porthole Cafe and knew we had to finish eating before it got too dark to take pictures, and we did. It is even more derelict than the review picture shows and is in bad shape but still hanging in there.

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.
