THE SHIP THAT WOULDN'T SINK

UPON HEARING THAT MY BROTHER AND I WERE DIVERS AND
WERE IN MUNISING TO DIVE ON SHIPWRECKS, SOMEONE TOLD US
ABOUT A SHIP THAT HAD FOUNDERED NORTH OF GRAND ISLAND.
THE SHIP WAS SUPPOSED TO BE LOADED WITH WHISKEY. HE
TOLD US THAT SINCE IT WAS A WOODEN VESSEL, IT WOULDN'T
SINK ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM; BUT WOULD FLOAT
AROUND AT A CERTAIN DEPTH (UNDETERMINED) AND WOULD
PROBABLY HAVE FETCHED UP ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE
ISLAND, HAVING DRIFTED THAT WAY AND EVENTUALLY GROUNDING
THERE. HE SERIOUSLY SEEMED TO BELIEVE WHAT HE TOLD US,
BUT I AM INCLINED TO THINK THAT HE WAS KIDDING.

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; MUNISING

Subject headings: PROSE NARRATIVE -- Product or activity of man or animal
