Cindy and I were planning to do the standard visit with her mom on Sunday, then found out that her mom was sick - so we went to Mallows Bay instead. No sailing. In fact, I didn't even put up the mast because we needed to ghost through the debris fields with as little speed as possible.

I'm a bit ignorant about Mallows Bay Mitch. May have to do some reading. Looks like some amazing history just rotting away.

Very cool! Any idea how many wrecks are there? The Mallows Bay location is reputed to be the densest in area, as there are some 240+ wrecks (214 of one type of ship alone) inside of one square mile.
