RE: Wreck of the Fedra

Chris
you can see pics at company website at www.donjonmarine.com When I get back to Florida around Oct 3, I'll post some recent pics'. The engine should be picked, hopefully in the next few days. Since it weighs 480 tons, the salvage crew has had to break it up-no small feat! We have taken out about 100-150 tons already (engine). The crane has a limit of 400 tons but that is optimistic od a dead lift off the stern of the barge. They tried lifting whats left and broke the wire slings. (rated at 150 ton). Ill get some shots to post.
My job is tugs but my passion is small boats! I am very content with a skiff/outboard.
