Bermuda30 Couldn't find any US record on her. What kind of growth was on her? (Hard vs. soft growth).

It coulda' snapped when it hit the bottom. It was likely moving pretty good after falling 300 feet.

sailingdog Too bad the link doesn't have the full HIN number, since that would tell us who built the boat... and that would probably answer the question of powerboat or sailboat.

labatt Look at the beam and draft with the length.. pretty sure that's a sailboat.

barney00 Got a potential hit for the sailboat:

Vessel Search Results

The dimensions seem a little off but its possible I suppose

Someone speculated that this vessel could have been sunk by the 2004
hurricanes, sat on the bottom of the ICW for a while, and then towed offshore and dumped. Possible theory I suppose....

Are call signs formatted for type of vessel? Just wondering if there is any way to tell if this is a sailboat or not....

labatt Looking at that wreck scares the crap out of me. Gotta have respect for the sea. Hopefully the owners are safe and not hanging out with Poseidon on board her right now. Please let us know what you find out, if anything.

soul searcher Did the groupers check you out they look huge. How much fishing tackle was tangled on her?
If you see a bottom fisherman on it you might ask how long its been there or win they found it. If they have there should be some lead and tackle on it if no tackle they havent found it yet. Might help you figure out how long Its been there. so would registration numbers. check the base of the mast on the port side. It seems to be the most popular place to put the registration sticker.
Thanks for the pics very cool.

Yeah, they are, but I'd love to hear the story.

It can't be a really happy one.
