HISTORY

Little is known about the history of the Pimellous. Numerous spelling variations appear in records (e.g., Pimelious, Pimellis, etc.), though none have been found to reference a former vessel. When sunk in 135 feet of water off Miami Beach onMay 11, 1971, the approximately 120‐ foot long vessel, perhaps a converted barge, consisted of a flat, featureless hull, with a large crane truck parked on the stern deck. Since its deployment, the wooden decking of the vessel has been consumed, leaving just the steel support beams in place. The crane truck can be found resting in the sand off the wreck, though the cab of the truck has long since rusted away.
