Crashed sailboat


Some of you will remember this crashed boat.  It's an iconic figure at Lake Sumter Landing in The Villages.

But, like the other fishing boat in this lake, this boat is also rotting away.  I think it's time the folks in charge of such tourist teasers should replace them with upgraded and newer wrecks.

There is not much left of that old boat. How do you know it is a sailboat? Looks like past time to clean up the dock.

The poor thing. It does look pretty bad.

I think you are right!

Oh...so you're going for a better class of wrecks??

Beautiful photograph though.

Yes, an upgraded new wreck is needed. :)

They do anything to attract visitors nowadays.. ;)

Absolutely right! Nobody wants to see a rotting shipwreck, that just makes the place look untidy. Replace it with a brand new shipwreck, ASAP!

I seem to remember having discussions about this old wreck Lowell ☺ it's looking much worse for wear there, I guess if you start your life as a wreck, you're already more than half way to the end ☺

This rotten wreck adds some special air to the photo. But now that you already took a photo, it should be taken away.

Hahaha... somehow the idea of "newer wrecks" is funny to me. :-)
