The wreck that was gracing the shore at Monomoy for the last nine months was finally towed off the beach last week. A salvage crew turned the wreck around on the beach and waited for high tide to tow it into deep water. I was hoping that the boat would be cut up where it lay on the beach and then brought to the dump. Instead, she was towed and put back on a mooring in the harbor. I am not sure if the taxpayers of Nantucket paid for all of this. Hopefully not and the owner of the wreck paid for the salvage operation himself. Here are a few pictures of the salvage operation in progress.
