collision with Norwegian freighter Bandeirante - no casualties
The Great Isaac was a very large V-4 class tugboat, but not large enough to survive being gashed six feet deep in the engine room. The wreck now lies intact on its port side, buried to the mid-line. It is one of the premier wrecks of southern New Jersey. Both the "Offshore Tug" and the "Inshore Tug" probably derive their names from their proximity to the Great Isaac, and may not be tugboats at all.
