We Visit The Big B.B. (Busted-up Boat)

The SS Palo Alto, aka The Cement Boat, took a major hit from our recent storms. The front third of the ship broke off and settled on its side. The back end lost a bit of integrity as well. After reading the news, it was clear that a photo safari to document the incident was in order. We had hoped to get some good close-up shots from the end of the pier, but unfortunately it was closed--probably a good idea considering the damage incurred.

 Officials say the wave-ravaged ship will be treated with benign neglect. Hopefully the pier itself will reopen and offer a better, close-up view of the listing bow piece.
