The wreck of the George Rennie

The George Rennie (1885-1902) was a steel hulled ship scuttled in the lee of Hawking Point, Magnetic Island, Queensland, Australia. It was built in Middlesex as a 151 gross ton paddle steamer but in 1896 was converted into a lighter, transporting coal to Townsville harbour. It was scuttled in 1902 to serve as a breakwater for a small jetty in the bay. The remains of the ship can still be seen at lowtide from Picnic Bay beach.
