Hi we were the first ones to find the Sara Gamp,and have been going and checking on her everyday sence.If you are the gentialmen that we seen leaving the beach in your rubber boots ,and asked you not to say anything to anyone about her,so no one would go and take stuff off of her, because and the owners knew that she was there and we were watching her for them till they arrived. We are not inpreassed about seeing this on here, and the owners have a pour site to see when thay arrive.she is striped of everything.Thanks to people like you posting this stuff on the net.(Dont you think we couldn't of told everyone with our 100 pics or so of her)after the owners come and do something with her i will send you the pics of the day we found her to the day she leaves the beach and you will see why we were keeping quite about her down there.
thanks:kerry,chad,& julie.

Chad, Kerry, & Julie,

I appreciate you taking the time to express your feelings about my posting the pictures on my blog. While I don't agree with your assertion that the Sara Gamp was stripped because of my (or others) posting the location on the internet, your comments do raise some interesting questions about the role of the photographer in the community. In this case I feel that posting these pictures really did no harm. This is mostly because these pictures were not posted until midday Monday when the Sara Gamp was mostly stripped already (I've been keeping an eye on it too). My thought is that you found my blog by searching for information about the Sara Gamp, already knowing that it had washed up. In fact, I was pleased to be able to use the internet as a tool to inform members of the sailing community who had expressed interest in the Sara Gamp's whereabouts on various message boards. I understand that we may not agree regarding this, but I welcome your comments nonetheless.

In Mr. Graham's defense, you were not the only ones to know about the Sara Gamp being washed ashore. I too had seen the Sara Gamp and took my own photos long before they were ever posted on this website. I had heard people talking about the boat on Friday the 4th and took a walk to see for myself. It was pretty common knowledge, and after all people do walk those shores all the time and if you looked in the right place, you could see the masts from the road. So, to say that it is the fault of Mr. Graham, and others like him posting on the net, that others found out about this boat and salvaged parts off her is just ridiculous!!!
