@ DCsailor - My company "FST Dive Services" was contracted to make a salvage attempt on the vessel. A 65 footer is a bit larger than the typical salvage in our area, so we asked for help and additional flotation from another company in the area. The USCG did not shut us down at anytime, instead I stabilized the vessel and asked them to call in the barge. At that time, I chose to turn over the salvage to TowBoat here in the area. Given the size of the vessel, and some details at which this time we can not divulge, we felt more comfortable letting them remove the vessel with a barge. I cannot speculate as to any cause of the sinking, but to help settle curiosity of forum members on here, in my time under and inside the boat I saw no evidence of any failure on the part of NEMS. The transom appeared fine and I saw no evidence of new damage to the hull. The final verdict as to what caused the sinking of this vessel will be determined by TowBoat US and the marine surveyor on site. I would like to also state that the oil response for this job was among the most professional and comprehensive that I have ever seen. The owners of the boat, and crew of NEMS have been nothing but helpful in the removal of this boat and cleanup efforts. Check out my company's page at www.facebook.com/divemyrtlebeach or our website at www.fstdiveservices.com.

We wanted to provide an affordable option for the owners, but the barge was a more feasible (albeit more expensive) option for this job. The boat is currently back on the surface.

Problem with "double down" is...if she is going to be USCG regi...then that name is prob already taken. At least I think thats how it works.

Who is in procession of the boat now? My guess is the red team.

please excuse my ignorance - I'm strictly a small boat guy. Why was there still diesel fuel aboard?
