Mike the Lobsterman on the wreck of the schooner Jennie M. off Salisbury Beach

The cargo schooner Jennie M., driven ashore by a powerful nor'east storm while enroute to Boston with a cargo of cobblestones, was lost with all hands. The ship's ribs, buried in the sands of Salisbury Beach, uncover every few years during winter storms.

Local gossip holds that the Jennie was carrying moonshine liquor.

The crew abandoned ship. Their bodies were never found. Sole survivor of the wreck was the ship's cat.

Mike visits one day and has a few things to say in his usual eloquent way.
