Hi guys

I was doing one of my little research items and I got sidetracked by an image of abandoned ships in Yerba Buena cove 1849 (Gold Rush). I also found a data card which mentioned the Niantic which led to the wilki page and a good read over a coffee. The more I do research the more I like history in general. All these occasions of abandoned ships must have led to so many stories.









and here is the wiki page for you, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niantic_(whaling_vessel)

that's incredible......all that hardware and timber just going to waste...........I suppose the rewards were justifyable though in what some prospecters made
