Names of sailing ship wrecks, Sodus Point NY?

There are two wood wrecks south of Krenzer's Marina, near the Sill property. In the 1970s the decks were still above water, but as of 2015 there is nothing showing. They are moored side-by-side, bows facing into shore; the sterns are marked with a metal post. Does anyone know the names of these sailing vessels?

I know of the two barges that are directly off of the floating docks and just off the land jetty that sticks out with other barges docked on the south side. Are those the two wrecks you're referring to? If so they were not sailing ships they were wooden barges used for hauling timber and coal.
