YACHT RECOVERY-SOT-VO IN PLASMA


Capt. Phil Pica, Fish Tale Marina

8:49:40 a little worse than I thought it would be. It was burned all

the way down to the water line as you can see, there's not much left

of the boat. 8:49:45

Capt. Phil Pica, Fish Tale Marina

8:49:01 you never want a boat like that with all the diesel and all

the contaminates to be left out here. If It's clean, it's one thing,

but you want it cleaned up, you don't want that floating around the

environment. 8:49:12

RIGHT NOW WE'RE WORKING TO FIND OUT IF THE BOAT IS STILL HANGING OFF A BARGE OR IF ITS MADE IT BACK TO LAND FOR INSPECTION.

AS SOON AS WE LEARN MORE, WE'LL PASS IT ALONG. Return to index of stories...
