Marine salvage is the process of recovering a ship, its cargo, or other property after a shipwreck or other maritime casualty. Salvage may encompass towing, re-floating a sunken or grounded vessel, or patching or repairing a ship. Today, protecting the environment from cargoes such as oil or other contaminants is often considered a high priority.
Another Successful Salvage
The boat had sunk after a previous salvage operator (not us) put the boat on a mooring. The rudder was bent and allowed water in and the boat sank on its mooring. TowBoat U.S. was contracted to remove the vessel from the seafloor by DPNR. Using our commercial divers, we attached lift bags to the underside and were able to get the boat upright and pump it out.
