Ship wreck

After these last 3 or 4 hurricanes in the vicinity, this old ship was tossed ashore. People said they saw it back in 1997 and has made occasional appearances over the years. Now it is a big attraction on Ft. Morgan beach, just down the road from me. It is located between mile markers 5 and 6.

And it is way longer than it looked on TV and in the newspaper.

The boat had burned to the water level and what you see now is the part that was underwater still very much intact, blops of hardened molten metal and lots of charcoal where the fire was.

Doesn't this look like a one of the spooky ships from the Pirates of Caribbean movie ?
