Southern Trail Engine Room

Snow Day!

Since I am off today, I thought I would work on some reports for the Ministry. Was processing this footage of the engine room of the Southern Trail and thought that it would be cool to toss it up on the old YouTube.

Please note that this vid is on the official Liquid Archaeology YouTube channel. I’ll be posting LA videos there from now on.

    Do you have any more recent pictures of the ship before it was sunk? My grandfather was the captain of a ship called southern trail in the 70’s and 80’s. I was wondering if it was the same ship. Thanks.

    I have pictures of the Southern Trail when it was docked on the Inter coastal Waterway by Daytona Beach. It was owned at the time by Mr. & Mrs. Castro the people who invented the pull out sofa beds. I have a picture of me in the wheel house and also standing outside disembarking the Southern Trail. I also have pictures of Mrs. Castro and myself sitting inside the main floor area which had a dining area and living room. The 93 foot Southern Trail was bought by the Castro’s in 1951.
