p.2 Should Sink Derelict

The hull of an old boat sunk in the channel near Cartwright's Point, in Dead Man's Bay has been causing some trouble this year, and it is the opinion of many who are camping thereabouts that the hull should be blown to pieces. A small boat struck it the other night about eleven o'clock, and had some difficulty in getting off. The wreck has been lying there for years and in the summer it is just out of sight, being only a few inches under water. Most of the local boatmen know of this, and steer clear of it, but strange boats run into it.
