There’s a very nice article at NJSCUBA.net on the Cranford and her sister ships njscuba.net/reefs/site_nj02sg_cranford.php and includes the history of the ferry line and a description of the railroad bridge incident as she was being brought in to Brielle to serve as a floating restaurant. She served up food from 1965 through 1979 and I remember seeing her as I went over the 35 bridge going down to Point as a kid. Currently she still serves up food but strictly fish and lobster. A good dive was had by all with mid fifties bottom temps. and bottom vis. of 15 to 20 feet, surface vis. was poor but it opened up on the bottom.
