Salvaged vessel

Once the pollution threat was minimized, priorities turned toward salvage. A front loader, typical of a construction site, was brought to the beach to move the sand that had bedded down around the grounded vessel. Unable to tow the vessel out to sea because of the depth, it was cut into pieces and successfully hauled off the beach. U.S. Coast Guard photo courtesy of Lt. Renee McKinnon.
