Some shoes, slippers, bread, were on the ship. Independence II is a 1005 Cargo vessel with a crew of five. It left Portsmouth Dominica and came to Port Kingstown under Captain Cyril Hyacinth.

The discovery of the boat is seen as a strange occurrence and followed with some interest by marine enthusiasts.
