Here's some more information on this.

A great summary is available at mcgraw-hill.

Part of the ship was sunk by the USS Bremerton on March 11, 1999.

The main Portland paper, The Oregonian, has a great online section about this wreck (registration required).

Oregon's Department of Environmental Quality (somewhat like the EPA) has some information on this, but it is mainly about how this type of problem will be prevented in the future.

I think the stern is still sitting a few feet from the beach- it certainly was for a few years. The owners were threatened with legal action, but I've had trouble finding current information on this.
