Roy A. Jodrey
|About the Roy A. Jodrey:
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.
About the Wreck:
The Jodrey is resting on a steep vertical wall at a depth of
approximately 200'. Her bow mast is the first part of the wreck you
approach at a depth of about 150 feet. At the 200' mark you reach the
bow, she is upright with a 45 degree list to the starboard side. The
stern lies at the 211 foot mark.
