or what's left of it!

It no longer resembles it's former self.  We were told on Thursday that this boat was of plywood construction and that it would break up when the high tide arrived on Friday morning after midnight.  Well it survived that pounding but the high tide last night, wrecked havoc on it as now seen.  The hull wasn't plywood.  More like swimming pool Gunite with reinforcing rods and wire mesh.  Due to all of this natural construction weight, it probably didn't have a lead keel as a lot of fiber glass and wood boats are required to have.

The largest piece of rubble detached from the boat and sitting up on the beach at the high tide line.  I'm guessing, part of the cabin?

These are probably the backup outboard motors which probably weren't a lot of help either, to keep this boat afloat at sea, or at ocean as in this case.

Yesterdays boat bumper, today's rubble.

This is part of the mast, held together by duct tap and strengthened by a length of wrought iron.  Like I said before, there was not much apparent value to this boat to begin with but on the other hand, the owner may be homeless now so it could have had value for him.
