Lost Nessie Spotted off Magnetic Island

Lost Nessie Spotted off Magnetic Island   

Magnetic Island is abuzz after a strange, monster-like object suddenly appeared out of waters off Picnic Bay on the weekend.
Loch Monster

The spectacle had visitors and locals scratching their heads, with theories ranging from large birds to sunken boats.
Magnetic Island resident David “Crusty” Herron, who took this photo, said he was glad to capture the animal or object on film, and had started calling it Lost Nessie.
“I looked out and saw this thing in the water and thought,.. it’s a Loch Ness monster’,” he said.
“There was this feeling of excitement on the beach, and all these people were pointing and talking about what it could be.
“Someone said it looked like the Loch Ness monster, and said maybe Scotland had been too cold lately so it decided to come and visit Maggie.”

The most likely explanation is that the low tide revealed part of a sunken boat, with reports a dragon boat went down off the island one week ago during a race.
Regardless, Mr Herron said that the sighting could be an asset to tourism, and attract more visitors to the island.
Anyone with explanations are being urged to come forward.

[We have run reports on Dragon boats before: That is NOT what a Dragon boat looks like!!]
