Additional Details:
This concrete ship situated at the foot of Sunset Boulevard was one of an experimental lot of ships built by the United States Government during the World War. The Atlantus was purchased by promoters for use as a Ferry Landing for a proposed route from Cape May Point to Lewes, Delaware. One night a Northeast Storm broke it from its mooring and beached it and the ferry project did not materialize at that time, but there is still hope that it will eventually become a reality.
