Built in 1965 for the Algoma fleet, the Jodrey was a fairly new 623 foot Canadian self un-loader. On November 21 1974 while traveling upbound on the St. Lawrence River, the Jodrey struck a navigational buoy and quickly began taking on water. She ran up on Pullman Shoal near Alexandria Bay NY where work crews worked hard to pump out the enormous amount of water coming in through her bow. After the crew escaped and all efforts were made to save the ship she began slipping underwater and slid down the steep shoal, within sight of the Alexandria Bay Coast Guard Station.

I was on her that night ( oiler) . Just turned 20 years old the month before in October '74. She was my first ship. Still have the love letters my girlfriend ( now my wife) sent to me that I did not receive before she went down, lol. I have never opened them !
