My sister lives near Virginia Beach and they just had a 3 day Nor'Easter. This ended up on a beach. I am guessing they will have to demo it on the beach and haul it away as scrap????

Wonder what's in the containers?? Isn't there a law that if you find something abandoned and a drift at sea you can claim it as yours?

I lived out there for 10 years, and that is pretty common, not normally that big, but pretty big stuff blows up every time there is a big storm/hurricane/noreaster.....

I miss being there. Tell me again why we stay in Michigan????

I bet there are some local salvage boys that can go down and get that afloat!


Garry- I ask my self the same thing, and honestly the two answers I have are boating and northern Michigan boating....

All though after this year, i am ready to move south...

Kind of figured looking at the picture that a couple of tugs could get that off the beach without too much trouble with help from the tide. Checked the paper down there and sure enough, barge is already off the beach and on its way to New Jersey.

According to one story, part of the cargo was a shipment of rum. Probably could have found lots of help to lighter that!
