Nor’easter Uncovers A Piece Of Maine Nautical History
It looks like that Nor'easter over the weekend did more than just wash up a bunch of debris, close roads, and wreak havoc with everyone's plans.
Seacoast Online says the wreck was last seen after the Patriot's Day Nor'easter in 2007. They say the ship's skeleton shows up once every decade or so. A marine archaeologist has taken a look at the remains, and says he thinks it's a sloop from the Revolutionary War.
The outline of another vessel was seen on Gooch's Beach, in Kennebunk, ME. Seacoast Online claims while this wreck's identity is also unknown, residents say they've seen it appear several times over the past 75 years.
As the weather clears and things return to normal, the sand will slowly cover the artifacts, leaving them under wraps until next big storm reveals them again. Until that time, people across New England are headed to the beach to snap pictures of what could possibly be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a real piece of New England history.
