Out paddling my kayak, I noticed on Saturday (1 October) that Tranquil, a long-time semi-derelict anchorer in Church Creek was looking a bit more “laid back” than usual.
A neighbor on the other side of the cove said that the sinking condition of the boat had been reported to DNR on Friday, 30 September, and they said they had checked it out and figured it was filling from rain [I don’t think so.], but would be OK.
SO I guess they should have been able to find the owner of record?
And then I went by today (Tuesday, October 4th) and this is what I saw:
So is the DNR staffed by former submariners who still think their success is measured by “Tonnage Sunk?”
It is going to be SO much harder to refloat and remove the hulk, rather than simply pumping it out.
Do it right, please???
