Because I’d posted about Grouper in winter, spring, and summer, I wanted an autumnal foto as well.  Yet I feared it wouldn’t be there.  What I found was worse:  it was still there but vandals had left their marks.

They knocked windows out, and that could mean the beginning of the end, especially with winter approaching.  While taking fotos, I met the owner, who

said the vandal was caught and the tug will soon be hauled out.  He also said it had a very deep draft:  18′!  Other reliable sources say 12.’  I’d love

to get up there again when it’s hauled to foto the hull and machinery.  Please get in touch, D.
