Cape Cod Old Wreck Hauled Ashore

On November 28, 1951, the dragger C. R. and M. fouled its nets in the wreckage of an old wreck and brought the snagged portion back to Provincetown in order to regain use of the nets.

The old wreckage was all in one piece and had much other twine fastened to it, evidence that other fishing boats had run afoul of it. The wreckage defied all identification. Some of the men thought it was part of a scow, others thought it looked like the wreckage of a ship long ago on the bottom of Cape Cod Bay. The timbers were still stout, though waterlogged.
