UPDATED: Obsidian sinks again

The small sail boat which resembles a pirate ship, appears to have sunk at its anchor on the West Arm of Kootenay Lake.

Obsidian, the small pirate ship anchored near the Lakeside shores, has seen better days. It sank just offshore from the Chahko Mika Mall’s parking lot on Friday afternoon.

Owner Gary Ramsbottom, who raised the ship after it previously sank in January 2013, told the Star there is nothing toxic on board and currently the keel is resting on the lake bottom. He hopes to put together a crowd-funding effort to once again resurrect the schooner, which he has been maintaining on a “shoestring budget”.
