On January 3, 1903 at 3:15AM the Spanish ship, the Remedios Pascual went ashore in @shipbottomlbi due to a SE gale, thick fog and rough seas 🌊. An excerpt from the 1903 Annual Report of the US 🇺🇸 Life-Saving Service describes the dangerous rescue: “Surfmen then returned to station, hired horses 🐴, teamed surfboat to shore, and at daylight pulled off to the wreck ⚓️ and landed her crew of 21 men, making three trips, and being assisted by crew from Harvey Cedars Station.” Stop by and 👀 the wheel we have from this wreck—we’re still open every day ☔️ or ☀️ from 10-4! #njmaritimemuseum #njmaritimehistory #maritimehistory #makehistorycoolagain #shipwreck #shipwrecks #shipbottomnj #harveycedarsnj #visitbeachhaven #remedios #pascual #uslifesavingservice #surfmen #spain #usa #shipswheel #sunsets #rescue #galeforcewinds #roughseas #thickfog #1903
