    From the Tampa Bay Times:

    Sunken Dreams: Everything they own is at the bottom of John's Pass

    excerpts:

    They had no sailing experience. His father helped them sail along the Gulf Coast, from Alabama to Panama City. That’s how the couple learned how to sail.

    ...  It was about 8:45 p.m. when they sailed into a new port, navigating a channel they had never sailed before, in the dark, fog rolling in.

    Broadwell steered while Walsh stood at the bow, lighting their path with a spotlight, trying to figure out the navigational buoys. But the red and green buoys seemed out of place, they said, and the shoal wasn’t where their 2016-17 navigational charts said it should be. Had Hurricane Irma altered the channel?

    Then it happened: The Lagniappe struck something underwater. Walsh almost flew off the deck.
