And here it is three years earlier, in 2007 (click the image for the Flickr page and a brief history of the wreck):

She may have been poorly constructed, but her ribs and keel have survived more than a hundred and fifty years of exposure to the elements. They’re a bit smaller now than three years ago, but I’m betting there’ll still be fragments long decades from now.
