The current Salvage operation was halted by the USCG and tomorrow morning a different operation will step in and raise the boat. Will have new photos to post in the a.m. Thanks to everyone for the support and kind words.

there is no such thing as "curses" or "karma" or crap like that. those are imaginary "forces" that do not exist just like unicorns and leprechauns. a boat is an inanimate object that can be repaired. it has no soul.

she should be raised and restored because there just isnt another 64' viking hull #1.

I'm in the 'fix it at all costs' camp. The owner can heft the coin; I think that is safe enough to state.

Some things in life simply do not go as we intend, despite our most gallant response to the challenges that the situation might present.

If we do not lack worldly resources with which to respond, then we should never, never lack the internal fortitude to respond.

Float the f*$Ker; motor it to Flawda; and repair it as originally intended.

Then, give it a new name that expresses the history in more than a singular context: "Double Down"

Do it.

I know our vote will not count in the end, but if this boat is not renamed "Double Down" I will be disappointed

Another THT fan rooting for you guys!!!! What a sad thing to see. BUT, I have a feeling this is not going to be the last we see of this boat. Hopefully not!! Keep on keeping on NMES. And thanks for what updates you can and HAVE given us. Lord knows these updates are the last thing on your mind right now.

Another vote for "Double Down"

CHARLESTON, S.C. — The Coast Guard contracted the removal of any fuel or hazardous substances that may be aboard the 65-foot motor vessel Wanderer Monday, after the vessel sank in the Intracoastal Waterway at Osprey Marina in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Saturday morning.
Personnel at Coast Guard Sector Charleston were notified of the sunken vessel and directed pollution responders to investigate further.
The vessel Wanderer was found partially submerged at the pier and was actively sheening diesel fuel. The responsible party made initial efforts to mitigate the spread of pollution to the local waterways by having an absorbent boom deployed around the vessel and dock. Horry County Fire and Rescue and Towboat US recovered or removed a total of seven 55-gallon drums and two 50-gallon fuel tanks from the vessel. According to the owner, no other source of fuel remains on board. All residual pollutants remain contained within the boom and are being recovered using absorbent padding.
The Coast Guard contracted Intracoastal Environmental to remove any fuel that may still remain aboard or in surrounding waters. The owner of the vessel is working with Seatow and Towboat US to conduct salvage operations.
The Wanderer is the second vessel to sink and cause sheening in surrounding waters in South Carolina during the holiday weekend. The 45-foot boat Miss Caroline sank at a pier in Mount Pleasant, S.C., Thursday morning. Due to the owner’s inability to salvage the vessel, the Coast Guard contracted a local salvage company Saturday to raise the boat and remove any remaining fuel.

Well it looks as if the tanks were removed!!

Talk about a hefty bill here....

It will probably have to be towed or drydocked and repaired again!

Good Luck guys!

Dock talk has it that a line on the live well let the water in.

Others think water came in from the exhaust. She was fueled at night from what im told. She was usually fueled in the morning before leaving port.
