On the 13th and 14th of August 2020, Department of Maritime Heritage staff visited Whalers Beach in Albany. The trip was in response to public reports of exposure and vandalism of Elvie. An ABC news article on Monday 10th of August (Hussey 2020) showed the wreck had been exposed by recent storms, justifying a prompt Museum visit.
