F/V Savannah Ray Defuel

February , 2016

The F/V Savannah Ray washed ashore on Long Island, near Kodiak, AK. The wreck was located on rocky shore line surrounded by vertical cliffs with open fetch on three sides to the Gulf of Alaska. Weather and location proved very difficult to access. First low tide time period at end of February allowed for defueling stern tanks (3). Second mission in early March allowed for drilling and measuring all tanks in machinery space to certify all known and observed bulk petroleum sources had been removed.
