It has been a little while since I have been able to give an update.
The shrimp boats have has their fuel (close to 1000 gal) and hazard material removed by the Coast Guard. Unfortunately the shrimp boats them selves are still out there and breaking apart fast. There has been a lot more boat traffic in the creek since the accident, everyone wants to see the sunken shrimp boats. Some even think its cool and add a charm. The down side is that Lady Essie is breaking apart fast with items floating up and down the creek. Mark has pulled a few pickup truck loads of it out which was floating along the creek to the trash. Coolers, foam, boards and other items. There is still a mid refrigerator out there a little to big to get into a canoe safely floating in the grass area along with other debris. Lady Essie really has no back deck left to it now as it breaks apart and the walls are pulling apart as well.Diane, so far is holding together a little better at the moment, for how long, no one really know.
The boats were in the news a little while ago and so were we.
