Reader Finds Shipwreck Evidence

This piece of flotsam was found near La Selva Beach on Tuesday.

Patch reader Chris Meyer sent in these photos and a short report about pieces of a possible shipwreck found on a South County Beach this week:

My dog Daisy Bear and I found this piece of flotsam at approximately 36.941249, -121.870483, just up the coast from La Selva Beach proper around 2:30-3:00 Tuesday afternoon. It looks like an interior wall of a ship, made of fiberglass and wood with wires sticking out. I wasn't able to find any markings and it was too heavy to flip over with one person. In the general vicinity were also some Dean Foods milk crates and cheap white plastic chairs.

There were no reports of a ship going down in the area this week, but debris can travel a great distance via ocean currents.
