Coordinate data needs fixing[edit]

{{Geodata-check}} 29°57′20.4″N 90°3′17.57″W / 29.955667°N 90.0548806°W / 29.955667; -90.0548806

Actually, on neither the Google nor the Bing "satellite" view do I see a boat of any kind at either the coordinates given in the article or those you've given above. Geocoding a movable object like a boat is always problematic, unless it happens to be sunken, permanently berthed, or moved to some sort of permanent display on land; and I'm going to remove the coordinates from the article until the location of this one can be reliably established. Do you have a source that definitively establishes the boat's current location and immobility (I can't find one, myself)? Deor (talk) 23:02, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
No, I got those coordinates from the article. I included them here because {{Geodata-check}} doesn't provide for their inclusion. Perhaps I'll make an edit request for that functionality on the template page.
