Exposed by Hurricane Georges

The huge timbers you see are a ship's keel section, washed ashore in the fury of Hurricane Georges in the fall of 1998. A house was destroyed with it's impact. The remains formed the bottom ridge line of the ship and would have held the ribs of the ship's hull. Expert Analysis of the material and construction indicate that the ship was built in the 1800's or earlier. The purpose of the Ship, it's origin and the Fate of its Crew is unknown.
