The term "cove" seems misapplied here. You're right, it's the Atlantic Ocean, sandy shore, near where I grew up. The only harbors are Newburyport to the south, or Rye and Portsmouth to the north.
Too bad, looks like it was once a nice, and probably fast, boat. Now with no rigging, no rudder, and flooded, she's probably more a liability than some salvor's prize.
One other small point. "Salvage" means to "save". Some people think it means "steal stuff from because no one's looking". I think the Webster's term for that is "looting". More than a few ugly incidents when people say "salvage" when they're just stripping someone else's boat.
I wonder what the story is behind this. Stolen? Insurance fraud? Mere idiocy?
Having been through Katrina, generally fiberglass hulls with some damage and no rig are not worth money. Au contraire, they cost some person, underwriter, or governmental body, some money to remove, and then find a place that will accept a pile of shredded fiberglass as waste.
