On a half day fishing trip in July, we were heading out on the Little River toward the ocean when we passed this abandoned shrimp boat during low tide at the intersection with the Intracostal Waterway. I captured several high tide images coming back up the river to Calabash. A year ago, there was apparently engine trouble and the boat ran aground on Bird Island, near Sunset Beach. It was later towed to this spot, and then abandoned.
Not until I was editing these pictures did I notice the boat’s name – Sum Day. Ha, not the “Love Boat” graffiti painted on the front. I then recalled photographing the Sum Day back in the summer of 2015.
Below are some photos of the Sum Day from my August 2015 Calabash! post. For the best viewing experience, click on these images to see a high resolution version.
