Images of Schooner in the Cove from John Toczydlowski What Came After
  In August 1976, the schooner was destroyed after being burnt three times but the ship was not like this. At low water, this is about what it looks like today, however there is in this photo a pipe in front of the ship. I think that it was the anchoring pipe for the canoe that the boats circled around. This photo angle looks like it was taken from a boat in the pond. (John Toz)
