Default MARY WOODS No. 2 Sinks - two men in custody

The sternwheel towboat MARY WOODS No. 2 sank during the night of January 31st. Here is a news article: Mary Woods No. 2 sinks, two men in custody - KAIT-Jonesboro, AR-News, weather, sports, classifieds-

I've never had the pleasure of seeing this boat in person, but judging from photos they kept her well maintained. The park supervisor, Mark Ballard, always orders a sternwheel towboat calendar from us.

Whether the boat is salvagable, or can be affordably salvaged, is still unknown at this time. She sank in 20' of water on her starboard side. Attached is a photo of the boat from my files.
