One less Malahide

https://www.cheknews.ca/boat-destroy...island-593447/

The Eagle Mar, a Malahide trawler that has been anchored at the head of Long Harbour for several years, is gone.

Last evening, there was a pall of smoke drifting up Houstoun Passage in front of our home. No explanation available until today, when someone posted the above link to the social site my wife looks in.

What a shame. I was raised around boats like that.

That is very sad when you look at how much man/hours of work were needed to build such a beauty.

Wallace, are you the one on the middle or the right?
