Sunken Ship Uprighted, Still Sunken

ABERDEEN, Wash. – Drivers over the Wishkah River Bridge may think that two masts have been erected on the river near Breakwater Seafoods, The Department of Natural Resources tell us those masts belong to a sail boat that quietly sank on private property there nearly three months ago. The state’s Derelict Vessel Removal Department says the owner of the ship has been trying to raise it, no hazardous materials are on board, and since the masts have been turned inland it is no longer a threat to navigation. A salvage company has been contracted to assist with the removal of the ship.
