The New Carissa. If I remember correctly, after she was abandoned she was headed in around Tillamook, then towed out farther to sea with the idea that she would sink on her own, then the Navy or Coastguard was called to finish her off, and then she ended up on the North spit. It may have been even slightly more complicated than that. I was long gone by then (I’m originally from Coos County) but my Dad was one of the locals initially most involved on the ground after she hit.
BINGO! The New Carissa it was. Thanks for reminding me.
