Discovered Off Coffins Beach

At dead low tide on Saturday, just off the shore of Coffins Beach, in an area that has seen significant erosion in recent years, a mystery has revealed itself. The remains of a boat hull approximately 16 to 20 feet in length has emerged from the sand; its ribs, uniformly truncated and buried until now, reach to the surface like hands from a watery grave. From where I stand (I am not appropriately dressed to make a close inspection) I cannot see any trace of the keel, which apparently remains interred. From whence has she voyaged and who knows of her loss? Please help me continue this story.
