Cape Blanco was a site of several marine disasters. One such grounding was the S.S. Sinaloa which was documented in the lighthousekeeper logs at the Cape Blanco Lighthouse which were diligently kept by Keeper James Langlois (1917 being two years before he retired with 1st Assistant James Hughes assuming duties of keeper on March 29, 1919).

On December 19, 1919, the steamer J. A. Chanslor struck Pinnacle Reef northeast of the station and wrecked north of the mouth of Sixes River with a loss of 26 persons:

Tambaugh was no stranger to shipwrecks, nor to the section of the coast where the Chanslor was now aground. He had been radio operator on the Sinaloa when that vessel was wrecked off Cape Blanco in June 1917, and on that occasion had been rescued by the Coast Guard. The Sinaloa was salvaged, and returned to service.
