This 96 foot old girl us just so forlorn as she sits covered in moss and rubbish. Although the local authority has a story and memorial to this old relic, it really needs a marine group to stand up and give her some dignity

We have visited this site several times over the years. The history of this ship is very interesting and is told via a nice display. We take a photo each visit and compare it to the previous ones to see how the ship has changed/decayed....More

After watching the video at the museum at Jerry's Rogue River boats about the Mary D Hume, we wish it could have been restored and preserved.

This is an interesting historical stop with shops nearby off the same large parking lot. Signs give the history of the freighter/whaler/tugboat, as well as other local history. It’s worth a quick stop.

This old ship is just about to rot into oblivion. It's too bad, given it's rich history, that more was not done to preserve this piece of History. If nothing else, stop and read the story. It's pretty impressive. It served the seas for 100...More

Wouldn't make a stop if I wasn't already in the parking lot for lunch. Hulk nothing of great historical significance. Walked over, said "ok" and when on our way.

This ship has quite the history. Well worth reading. Appearances are deceptive. At first glance, she appears to be an ol' abandonded, long forgotten hunk o' junk...

The Mary D. Hume lays deteriorating in the harbour adjacent the Jerry's Rogue Jets' landing. She has rested there in the shallows for decades, and is showing the effects of time and tide. Her wooden superstructure has now collapsed, and stands as a pile of...More

The Mary D Hume is located near Jerry's Jet boats. Walk over and take a look while waiting to board the jet boat. Good signage that tells the story of the boat.

Only shoot at low tide. This is a early morning shot. Would suggest 50-150 mm lens suggestion. Shoot from the bow as low as you are willing to squat.
