That's pretty cool.

I saw that on the news and some guy was saying she was not a warship, but was a rum runner. Possibly they did not find any armaments in the wreckage?

Still, it's a bit of history and therefore someone should try to figure out who she really was, for sure, just so we would know.

There appears to be a "hitch" on the front. Or is that the mounting for the rudder and I'm looking at the wrong end??
