Story from John Vonderlin

Hi June,
   You know how I love mysteries. With that in mind, I decided to start organizing the material I have on the shipwreck of the New York, which you could have seen from your front yard if it happened today. The mysteries here are, why did the ship go aground, was it deliberately beached, and if so, for what gain?
   I’ve attached a ScreenShot of a drawing of the New York’s bizarre path before it beached itself and a few of the ship. The photo of it beached with the horse and buggy in front of it 
   Enjoy. John
