Sad state of affairs
by: Jim Donaldson

I’m the son of the last owner and am completely disgusted at how all of this turned out after not only the purchase of her, but all of the money, blood, sweat, tears and time put into her before the ugly evil reared it’s head upon the passing of my late father!

RIP dad!!!

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?
