Default Sunken Sailboat Near the Dam?



Back in 2007, just before the lake refilled, what appeared to be the wooden mast of a sailboat could be seen poking about five feet out of the water near the east corner of the dam. Anyone know the story on that?

Yarr... There might be buried booty aboard her. Time to call in the salvage team!

Cool. Any other interesting items show up before the salt cedar took over?

The first summer that we had our cabin was in 2006. I walked quite a bit around the lake bottom in the few recently exposed places where the salt cedar had not yet gotten too thick, but didn't see much except golf balls. By the spring of 2007 the salt cedar was so thick everywhere and so full of bees that I didn't bother to look anymore.
