Ashore On Fire Island III

Unless television has lied to me, the surest way to make something disappear is to hire an excavator from Ronkonkoma. Yesterday, almost a month after she ran aground, bulldozers and backhoes used brute force to move Le Papillion down the beach and north across the island through a pathway known as the cut.  The hull suffered damage in the process.
I'm not sure what happens next, or how she will be transported off the island.

That looks like a beautiful boat. Hopefully, it can be repaired.

Bring it up to Gloucester and Essex! We'll get her back in the water.

Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with extra information? It is extremely useful for me.
