Great news! We will be getting a new shipwreck this year. 150' Lady Philomena will be sunk on site 12 near the southwest culvert pile!

If one new ship wreck wasn't enough, there will be a second ship sunk right next to Lady Philomena! It's a 90' tugboat call the Everglades.

 

The southwest culvert pile in site 12 will be getting a major upgrade this fall. I the way of not one but TWO new ships! The Lady Philomena a 150' cargo ship that was seized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection in March of 2017 for attempting to smuggle drugs in to the US. Then a second ship, a tug called the Everglades, will be  sunk right next to it on the same day!
