S.S. Minnow

The Minnow is looking good, still ashore from what was meant to be a three-hour tour... a threeee-hour tour...

S.S. Minnow

Burned, just a rusted hull, but freshly painted "S.S. Minnow." Still cool.

"S.S. Minnow" has been completely covered over and spray-painted with graffiti.

S.S. Minnow

I'm a resident, and the S.S. Minnow has been damaged by a fire [reported by a previous tipster]. The structure is still intact, but it is charred.

S.S. Minnow

The Minnow and the field around it have gone through a fire. Very eerie. There were a lot of trucks in the area, probably there to deal with the damage. Hope they leave the Minnow.
