It was once a staple and an icon along Grand Lagoon, but later considered an eyesore and soon it will be gone.
The Treasure Ship off Thomas Drive is finally being demolished.
Crews were out today using heavy machinery to tear down the ship.
The property owner acquired a demolition permit to tear down the ship after a fire caused it to close down in April of 2010.
Since then, the ship has fallen into a state of disrepair with pieces of burned wood and tarp hanging off its sides.
