Rainmaker spotted 200 miles off shore from Savannah, GA. Ready for salvage. Picture shows hard top gone, still afloat and very repairable.

Maybe low in the water but definitely still floating. I'm impressed since I'm sure it's seem some pretty bad weather since supposedly sinking.

Re: GUNBOAT Dismasting

It looks like it won't go any lower because of the cored construction. Somewhere in between awash and float? Didn't go over but that cabin didn't stay on....Not sure where the easy rebuild comes from...if the starboard hull side got really banged by the freighter it will need a new one....everything else has to come out so it isn't a slam dunk but it sure looks slammed.

I'm sure it's really sitting on the bottom. Surprised nobody has walked out there and claimed it.

Re: GUNBOAT Dismasting

Well it would be of benefit if the only alternative was swimming. Can you get that?


Or maybe you can swim for hundreds of miles and however long that takes?

Maybe reading this would help: Lost at sea - National - NZ Herald News
