| 40th Anniversary Observance |
of the Sinking of the
S/S TEXACO OKLAHOMA
At approximately 3:30 a.m. on the morning of Saturday March 27, 1971, the S/S Texaco Oklahoma was unexpectedly struck by a massive wave while proceeding at a very slow speed in a severe storm about 120 miles northeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, on its journey from Port Arthur, Texas to Boston, Massachusetts.
The S/S Texaco Oklahoma, carrying 220,000 barrels of fuel oil broke apart, with the bow section sinking with 13 men aboard around noon on the day of the mishap, and the stern section sinking with 31 men aboard around 6:00 a.m. the following morning.
Sadly, only 13 of the 44 crew members were rescued.
On Friday, March 25, 2011, a memorial service for the crew of the S/S Texaco Oklahoma was held in Port Arthur, Texas at the Seamen's Memorial Sundial on Lakeshore Drive, followed by a wreath-laying ceremony at the Sabine-Neches Intracoastal Canal. Also, a Maritime Safety Symposium, dealing with the sinking of the S/S Texaco Oklahoma and subsequent safey changes in the maritime industry, was held at the Port Arthur International Seafarers' Center.
This 40th Anniversary Observance of the Sinking of the S/S Texaco Oklahoma was recorded on Video and Audio. Unfortunately the Video recording of the Sundial & Wreath Laying Ceremony was not usable...however, the audio was succesfully recorded and some still photos.
This special Anniversary Observance is available on either (or both) Audio CDs, and Video DVDs. The DVD Video set contains 3 DVDs of the Maritime Safety Symposium and an Audio CD of the Sundial & Wreath Laying Ceremony. The CD Audio set contains 3 Audio CDs of the Maritime Safety Symposium and an Audio CD of the Sundial & Wreath Laying Ceremony. In addition, an extra bonus CD will be included with both sets of recordings containing over 250 photo's of the days events (.JPG format) and documents (.PDF and Word.DOC format).
