image of Buckhorn


Buckhorn is a Ferris-type wooden cargo vessel built by R.J. Chandler, Washington, CA, for the United States Shipping Board as part of the massive WWI ship building effort. Like many of the shipwrecks within Mallows Bay, Buckhorn was brought to its current location in the 1920’s for salvage. The vessel is now resting on its keel and the hull is in a substantial state of preservation. There is light plant growth in the bow and stern and a colony of freshwater clams is located within the after peak bulkhead.
