Deep Sea lift update #1: Deep Sea being set upright, lift to follow

by Larry Altose, Ecology public information

Divers and crane operators – working under contract for the Department of Ecology – have rigged the Deep Sea for righting and lifting it from the bottom of Penn Cove, near Coupeville on Whidbey Island.

Crews have verified that all connections are secure, and both cranes have taken up load. Winches on the larger of the crane barges have begun to pull on connections to place the vessel upright from its position 45 degrees to the left.
