SS Pendleton

SS Pendleton was a Type T2-SE-A1 tanker built in 1944 in Portland, Oregon, United States for the War Shipping Administration. She was sold in 1948 to National Bulk Carriers, serving until February 1952 when she broke in two in a storm. The T2 tanker ships were prone to splitting in two in cold weather. The ship's sinking is the topic of the 2016 film The Finest Hours.
