USS Hurricane Camile

Seawitch has a post about the fate of the USS Hurricane Camille, the 72-foot tugboat East Point that was pushed ashore in August 1969 with its bow facing west on property owned by the Moody family. The boat survived two of the worst storms in U.S. history. It survived the casino invasion of the 1990s and it even outlasted some of the largest gambling barges on the Coast; but today its days seem numbered.
The owner of the property is in her 60s and has no plans of reviving the iconic vessel or the gift shopthat used to operate from the boat..
