Fascinating - and glad to note that there has been improved water treatment that is halting sedimentation. The Boyne will be beautiful again.

Thanks Marty. Very cool find. I hope they find more and it'll be interesting to see what comes up when they're tested for dating.

Oh what a fantastic find. I dipped my feet in the Boyne in 1995....perhaps right near this very boat!
