there are so many things we love about maine, but one of the things we love the most is that we are at the shore or on a boat everyday. we talk of sailors, boating, and the lore surrounding them often...stories about seamen, pirates, old salts...so, seeing this shipwrecked vessel on monhegan island was like a dream come true for my children; they explored it, inside and out, with their friends. the tugboat, the D.T. Sheridan, ran aground in 1948, with the crew walking away unharmed. it turns out that part of another shipwreck (from 1957) lay upon the rocks too.
