SS Minnow.

S.S. Minnow

Burned, just a rusted hull, but freshly painted "S.S. Minnow." Still cool.

"S.S. Minnow" has been completely covered over and spray-painted with graffiti.

S.S. Minnow

I'm a resident, and the S.S. Minnow has been damaged by a fire [reported by a previous tipster]. The structure is still intact, but it is charred.

S.S. Minnow

The Minnow and the field around it have gone through a fire. Very eerie. There were a lot of trucks in the area, probably there to deal with the damage. Hope they leave the Minnow.

S. S. Minnow.

S.S. Minnow

The S.S. Minnow can be found along Hwy 58 on the right side as you head from Mojave to Tehachapi. It's an old, rusty, abandoned boat with "S.S. Minnow" painted on it that apparently has been stranded in this same spot for years. Over the years it's become a local landmark.
