Later yesterday the campground workmen put some cones around the broken electric post at site 87.
When I was wandering around the campground this AM I got in a conversation with an old man who told me about the sunken vessel in front of the spit. A landing vessel that normally takes cargo to villages that have no docks had begun taking on water last night. The Coast Guard brought them extra pumps, but the leak was too bad. Their sister vessel tried to get them into the harbor, but they were sinking fast so they ran aground. The sister vessel took off their crew and cargo.

|Harbor Master pulls up to the wreck|
|He goes on board to check things out.|

The Harbor Master has had yellow caution rope strung around it and the sister vessel has removed all cargo and valuables from the vessel. They may try to repair it and pump it out enough at low tide to refloat it and bring it into the harbor at high tide. We heard that a weld had failed from a retrofit.
|The Harbor Master is leaving.|
