Vessel Details


The Dauntless was found empty a mile and a half east of Cuttyhunk on March 28, 1984. A five-hour Coast Guard search deploying three boats and a helicopter  failed to find the owner, Joseph M. Cardozo. In July, his body washed ashore at Round Hill Beach in Dartmouth. He was still wearing his yellow rain overalls. Mr. Cardozo had survived sinkings in 1949 and 1972.
