It's the SS Cabrillo, was a three deck passenger transport for Catalina Island built 1905 in San Pedro. Comandeered by the U S Military for WW 2, brought to the Bay area for local troop transport, then bought/taken to Cuttings by Mr. Moore to be used as a restaurant, which never happened. Moore had the restaurant next to the wreck. The restaurant is still called Moore's Landing. Lots of info by googling SS Cabrillo. Also a old US Destroyer, USS Corry on east side of the river farther downstream.
