I found this information about the ship printed on a menu in a nearby restaurant. "In the years prior to World War II, Breece’s Landing – established along the banks of the River near the former Campbellton – became the social center of Fayetteville. The old, rusted metal boat that still sits between the Grove Street Bridge and the Cape Fear River Bridge was Patrol Craft 1084, which saw active service during World War II. Stripped of its guns and sold as surplus after the war, it was purchased to serve as a floating dock for Breece’s Landing."
