Ballard Diving & Salvage raises derelict vessel from Sinclair Inlet | Slideshow

Ballard Diving & Salvage raised the derelict vessel from Sinclair Inlet that sank this week.

Commercial divers from Ballard Diving & Salvage  working under a contract with the Department of Natural Resources utilized lift bags to raise the vessel and then towed it to the nearby Yachtfish Marine assisted with a travel lift in carefully removing the vessel from the water.

Ballard Diving & Salvage had an oil boom in place during the operation to prevent any possible pollution issues.
