Fate during World War II: The German vessel U-506 torpedoed the Gulfoil, an oil tanker from 1912, shortly after leaving Port Arthur, Texas, May 16, 1942.  A first torpedo hit the starboard side and 15 seconds later, a second torpedo struck the engine room, killing the three men on watch below. The crew had no time to launch the boats or to radio for help, when Gulfoil sank less than two minutes after the first torpedo struck. 19 men of 36 managed to leave the ship on two life rafts. 17 men died.
