BREAKING NEWS: Showdown on Maury Island Over Proposed Huge Gravel Pit Mine!

Ship Wreck at False Bay, San Juan Island

Sailboat

 

I've been trying to get my pics organized lately and found this picture I took about three years ago. I came across this fresh sailboat wreck on the west side of San Juan Island, just north of False Bay. Surprisingly, no one seemed to be around at the time so I paddled in close expecting a dead body to pop up out of the cabin.  After a few minutes I noticed a woman standing on the shore.  It must have been her boat because she looked pretty upset. After getting lost in the fog in False Bay for about an hour I passed the wreck on my way back.  The woman had been joined by a man in a dinghy and a diver. They were salvaging what they could from the wreck. They were in no mood to chat but told me it had broken free from its anchorage off of Lopez Island.
