Fate during World War II: The SS Montebello, a Union Oil Company's oil tanker, was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine off the coast of California close to the small seaport of Port San Luis, December 23, 1941. Fortunately, the torpedo hit the only compartment not loaded with gasoline. "The men wouldn't have had a chance if any other hold was hit," said Captain Olaf Eckstrom. "But it did knock out the radio." The crew at Montebello was unarmed, and as the men jumped into lifeboats, the submarine surfaced and fired at them with its deck gun. No one was killed but one of the lifeboats was hit and sank.
