sunken ketch in milwaukee harbor

We got onto town late last night and when we got up this morning I could two masts sticking up out of the water. Looks like its a 35 to 40ish foot boat. Anyone know the story?

There is an oil boom around the site so I don't think that this just happened. She looks like she was at a mooringball.

Hit by lightning and sank. Was (is?) an Erickson 35 ketch being sold on craigslist. NOAA Wx was predicting winds of 100mph from this storm. For those really interested there is a webcam of the marina (Lakefrontcam dot com). The masts are sticking out of the water just off the pier seen on the North Cam toward the left.

Do you know when this happened? The oil slick looks like a real mess.

I'm guessing the asking price just went down!
