JACOB M HASKELL

The Jacob M. Haskell was a 226 foot wood and steel hulled four masted schooner. She was built in Rockland Maine in 1901 and displaced 1,778 tons.

On June 2, 1918 the Jacob Haskel was en-route from Boston to Norfolk Virginia with an unknown cargo. The German U-Boat U-151 fired her deck guns at the Haskel. The German cannon convinced the Haskell's Captain to heave to. German officers boarded the Haskel and after a short inspection ordered her crew to abandon ship. The Germans then placed bombs aboard the Haskell and sent her to the bottom. The Haskell's crew was left to fend for themselves. They were picked up the next day by the steamer Grecian.

The Jacob M, Haskell now sits in 210 feet of water 50 miles from Barnegat Inlet.
