    I’m just trying to run down any other info on this subject. My wife and I were visiting Apalachicola earlier this month and we went by the maritime museum there. Last time we were in A’cola the Golden Ball was under restoration at the museum. On this visit we found the museum closed (temp ?) and no sign of GB. Later that day, a local told me that the GB was badly damaged in Hurricane Micheal, Oct 2018, and had to be scrapped. Can anyone confirm this, or is it old news?
