Its a very interesting read and I highly recommend checking it out along with the nice pictures that have been taken to document this historic ghost ship landmark.

After an hour and a half surface interval and a bit of a ride over to the Rouse from the Vernon, we gear up and make our descent down the line to the Rouse Simmons.
