The tragedy of the Annabelle Wilson

Captain goes down with the ship while trying to retrieve valuables

The maxim "you can't take it with you" is a caution that earthly possessions aren't useful after death. "Lighthouse Dave," a tour guide at the Dunkirk Historic Lighthouse disagrees. When he describes the shipwreck of the Annabelle Wilson which sank just a half mile off the Dunkirk harbor 100 years ago in 1913, he notes Captain Barney McIntyre did take his money with him - he just can't spend it anywhere. Apparently McIntyre went down with the vessel while attempting to retrieve some personal valuables from his cabin just before the vessel sank.
