She looks to be in rough shape, which is not unsurprising given she spent 6 weeks under water.
The Port Authority was hoping to seel her to recover costs. It doesnt look like there is anything of value left.

Looks Like RMI Raised the Sunken Silboat in the Northwest Arm. It will reportaly be held for sale at Pier 29 to recover costs. It was a nice boat, But I doubt its worth anything now after 2 months on the bottom.

This past Sunday, some morons boarded the Tall Ship Silva, Raised a Sail, and released all but one of her lines. That Last line, eventually broke, and she was spotted drifing by pier 21 when a tug was dispatched. Looks Like Halifax has a Case of piracy – from the Criminal Code of Canada Piracy

Those who frequently drive down Quinpool Rd near the Armdale rotaray probably recall seeing a sailboat moored in the arm year round. It was safe to assume that this vessel had been abandoned, untill last fall when a tarp appeared on her.
This August, She Sunk.
Its possible she filled with rain water, though its more likely that a thru hull fitting gave out, or a hose split. The owner has apparently be located, and is responsible for salvaging the vessel.
