Built in 1924 by William Wrigley, she carried more than 20 million passengers in a 51-year career, including 820,000 U.S. servicemen during World War II service. Since 1985, she has been virtually abandoned in Ensenada. A California landmark on the National Register of Historic Places; the SS Catalina barely survives today, partially submerged in the harbor at Ensenada, Mexico. The Mexican authorities have been patient while international efforts to salvage the Catalina have continued, but she is in the path of a new multi-million-dollar marina and an official Request For Proposals to dismantle her is eminent.
