It’s Shipwreck ⚓️ Sunday, so grab your coffee ☕️ and check 👀 out the story of the Lady Gertrude!

On August 15, 2016, the Lady Gertrude, a 78 ft. commercial fishing vessel was scalloping about 40 miles southeast of Sandy Hook in an area called Chicken Canyon. She began to take on water, which was later determined to have been caused by a broken main shaft. All three crew members were fortunately saved by the 85-foot commercial boat, the Mazey James who was scalloping about 5 miles away and heard their distress call over the radio! The Lady Gertrude sank in an estimated 130 feet of water.
