Tale of the Midnight Princess
by: CaptJack

I saw an ad for the Princess back in the early 2000's.

Later I saw a whole series of pictures of her on a for sale site.

Again later and I saw she was sailing out of Panama City as a tourist boat so I thought that when I was going to be in the area I'd try to get a ride.

I was going by Panama city on my way from Orlando to Mobile so I called and asked about the possibility of going out 1 day.

That's when I was told she had sunk in the gulf a couple years ago.

Very sad I have tried to keep track of her since.

Any info I can get on her would be helpful since I have friends in the keys I am interested in where she is and if she'll ever sail again or if there are any sister ships to her.

You can reach me by email or Facebook.

I was told she sank in the gulf in themed 20teens is that correct?
by: CaptJack Anonymous

I heard from the owner in the summer of 2017 that the ship had sunk a couple of years ago.

Then I saw this and wondered if someone had raised her and was trying a rehab.

Where is she now and is she recoverable?
