The Howard Shipwreck  New York and New Jersey's (Wreck Valley)
Historical and current New York and New Jersey Shipwreck Information and images for scuba divers and fisherman.

In 1911, the steam tug, Howard, was trying to salvage copper ore from the Roda wreck which had sunk three years earlier. She arrived from New York and anchored offshore. During her first night out, a gale blew up, causing her to drag anchor and eventually she ended up aground. All nine crew members were rescued without mishap, but the Howard broke up in the surf.

Today, the Howard, also known as the Scow Wreck, lies one quarter of a mile southeast from the Peter Rickmers Wreck, up on the surf line in 25 feet of water.
