UPDATE 8/25/2014: NOTORIOUS Found -- Unfortunately.

Well, I've been trying to locate NOTORIOUS -- the 1953 Feadship 82' Motoryacht pictured at left -- for well over a year now, but this is not how I wanted to find her. Starting Friday afternoon (8/22) and continuing through Monday (8/25) members of the old boat community have been emailing me links to news stories about NOTORIOUS sinking at the dock at Ditto Landing Marina on the Tennessee River in Huntsville, Alamaba. Sounds like she was partially submerged by Friday morning -- likely sitting on the bottom -- and raised by crane Saturday evening. One news story claimed the owner was out of the country and efforts were being made to contact him.

For a description of what things look like at the marina in AL, as well as links to news stories, <CLICK HERE>.
