Cozumel, Q.R. — The company of a recently sunken pirate ship is asking for help in its rescue. The Cozumel pirate ship sunk June 7 after it lost a battle with the heavy rains and strong winds felt by the passing bands of tropical depression Cristobal.
Crew of El Olones, a replica of a Spanish galleon that was used to give tours along the coasts of the Isla de las Golondrinas, is asking for help to retrieve the sunken ship, which they report, is resting in 35 feet of water. The ship, which caters to tourists, employs approximately 25 people. They say that their insurance does not cover the damage due to weather conditions.
“Unfortunately, the insurance that the ship had covered only people on board and damages to third parties. No damage to the boat due to weather conditions, as is the case,” they explained on social media.
Ship owner Don Luis Pérez indicated that the ship can be recovered, which is why a campaign has been created on Gogetfunding. The company has asked the community for its support explaining “several days of weather from the passing storm Cristobal and questionable pumps for the excess water, she took her last breath about 4 am and is now resting in 35 ft of water with her masks still held high.”
