(photo from time I go down to take a picture, the tide is too high)
Last week's nor'easter shifted enough of the beach at Short Sands enough to expose a shipwreck that was last seen in the early 1990's.
Historians believe that this shipwreck is a sloop from around the time of the Revolutionary War, although local amateur archeologists think that it might be a "pinky" a small, manueverable fishing/cargo boat. It seems to appear about once every 10 years after a big storm.

According to the village manager, Steve Burns, York has 67 shipwrecks and only 28 have been located.
