Watch the amazing drone video of ancient ship washed up by storms on Californian beach
Recent storms have unearthed an ancient ship of Coronado coast and are a feast for locals and tourists as it has washed up on the beach. It was on New Year’s Eve of 1937 that a ship repeatedly sued for illegal activities during prohibition sank off the coast of Coronado. It was the SS Monte Carlo which washed up on shore the following morning. But recent storms have unveiled the ancient ship.
Buried under sand all these years, the storms of El Niño have finally unearthed the remains and the ship can now be clearly seen.
1 A den of vice existing on water
SS Monte Carlo was notorious for illegal and nefarious activities during the era of US prohibition. Gamblers and drunkards as well those looking for fun and pleasure would make repeated trips to the ship via a small boat and spend the nights of debauchery and vice aboard the vessel.
It was always anchored in international waters to avoid capture. After being caught in a severe storm on New Year’s Eve of 1936, the ship sank and washed ashore. However, over the years the remains of the ship was soon buried by debris and sand.
