Takes a lickin’, and keeps on…well, floating.  Not much left on the Rainmaker, but with every hatch torn off and as much ocean inside as out, Gunboat 55 #1 has certainly proven to be unsinkable.  Here’s the note sent in by the container ship taking the snaps.

We found your Boat yesterday Screen Shot 2015-06-17 at 7.28.36 PMon this given location. We are on the way from Charleston to Le Havre, this is is a gearless Container Vessel, so we can’t do any savings.

I did’t make any rescue manoever to check the Boat. Hull looks in good condition.  The danger is that any ship at night will crash into this hull, then I guess it will be damage.

with kind regards
