About three years ago the trawler Laura J was heading south, down the coast, when all of its systems failed before running aground on Cedar Island. The 5-man crew was rescued and brought to a hotel in Wachapreague for the night. The next morning the crew was gone, and the trawler has remained there since. No one has managed to salvage it, but the swallows now have a waterfront home with a fine view.
