The Vessel

Image

See the historical account in the link below for more information on this vessel, including it's final move to Florida.  The attempt to preserve it as a museum in Florida failed.  In 2010, the pilot house was removed and shipped to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum to be placed on exhibit.  The remainder of the vessel was scrapped.
