 Spirit Of Sacramento  (Passenger Ship)
3 hours ago by Timsen

Raising has started
On Sep 29 the "Spirit of Sacramento" was raised and removed in a joint operation by the Coast Guard and other agencies. The Houston-based Global Diving & Salvage Inc. worked with the Coast Guard, California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Office of Spill Prevention and Response, Army Corps of Engineers, and others to start the operation in the afternoon near Bethel Island in the Sacramento-San Joaquin river delta. A crane arrived on site around 3 p.m., and work was expected to take 24 hours. After righting and dewatering the vessel, it was to be towed to the Army Corps of Engineers facility in Sausalito for removal of the oil and fuel on board. Containment boom was deployed in the event of oil or fuel leaking, and workers stood by with skimming equipment. Boom was also placed in predetermined locations to protect wildlife and sensitive areas. The waterway surrounding the "Spirit of Sacramento" was closed in the morning and would be reopened when the operation was complete.

Anchors of rig being raised
Work has begun on raising anchors attached to the "Transocean Winner" in preparation for moving the drilling rig onto the semi-submersible ship "Hawk" which was close by, ready for the rig to be floated on to its deck. In anticipation of an improvement in weather conditions, work has started on raising four of the eight anchors holding the rig in the bay. Later, the remaining four are to be raised in a similar operation, expected to last about 12 hours. The structure would remain attached to tugs.
