DERELICT DAYS - - Continued -

Another Lake "Mystery" ?  After yesterday's Tornado Warning and high winds - this 1970,  36ft Chris Craft suddenly appeared - washed up on the rocks near the 7 Mile Mark - -

Judging from her appearance - this old wreck had obviously spent considerable time on the bottom of the Lake - but mysteriously appears against shore - -
A RATHER "EERIE" SIGHT - -

Perhaps the Lake is slowly giving up her prizes - - - Rumor has it that "Jimmy Hoffa" owned a 1970 Chris Craft - - -  could it be???  A FORENSIC TEAM JUST ARRIVED IN BLACK HELICOPTERS - - - -
