  • Tumultuous winds and crashing waves blunder and toss the Gulf of Mexico. This is the fourth hurricane now to dredge up this wrecked schooner off the coast of Alabama.

    She came in first with Camille in 1969, then reemerged with both Ivan and Ike. Now Issac has lifted her ribcage free from the entanglement of seaweed and brought her back to our world from her watery grave.

    Some claim she is Rachael, a lumber schooner that was looted and burnt in the 1930's. Other say she is much older, perhaps the British blockade runner Ivanhoe, a sidewheel steamer circa 1830.

    I say she is a mystery and an artifact and she has some story she wants to tell. I say she keeps resurfacing for a reason.
