Shipwreck on the Toronto Islands

Hanlan's Point clothing optional beach has a part of history sitting in the sand, surrounded by metal barriers put up by the City of Toronto. A part of an old ship is nestled in the sand, probably a rudder of a pirate ship destroyed in some great battle with an antique Toronto ferry.

There are many questions that I have no answers to at this point, like, did it wash ashore during a storm or is the rest of the ship under the sand, is it a rudder, was it really from the 1800s, and will excavations and archaeology studies be undertaken in the area?

See more of the relic after the jump.
