S.S. Arthur Newell Talbot
The S.S. Arthur Newell Talbot was built by McCloskey and Company in Tampa Bay, Florida and launched on July 15, 1943. She was used as an army training ship on the West Coast. On September 15, 1945, she was laid up in Mobile, Alabama. In December 1948, she was partially sunk to form a breawater in Virginia.
The S.S. Arthur Newell Talbot lies with eight other concrete ships in a breakwater in Kiptopeke, Lower Chesapeake Bay, Virginia.

There are also photos of the Kiptopeke Breakwater available, although I do not know which specific ships are pictured.
