Chinook 34 wreck

Yesterday my son Joe and I went down to the lake front to check on the Chinook 34 wreck, the Falcon. It is working ever closer to shore. Joe took some evocative pictures here’s one.

Falcon aground

It should be interesting once the ice starts to build around her. The ice could lift her further ashore or it may send her back out into the lake to be pounded even more on the rocks.

Joe also got a close up of some of the damage to the hull. The orange circle shows where we are guessing the rudder post was torn out. The rudder is missing. You can just see the prop in this image.

She has an inboard engine and will likely be leaking fuel soon.
