Day 11

All of the previously stockpiled debris has now been removed from the beach. The starboard side of the bow bottom was freed from the ice with explosives and all of the bow sections have now been removed except for the starboard side wheelhouse, which will be taken off via the water side.

Explosives were also used to free the heavily iced stern bottom sections, however, chipping and sawing is still required to free them.

Wednesdays work should focus on removing the starboard sections of the fish hold and outer hull.

The weather is still cold and windy. Temperature in the low 20’s with winds to 25 knots. Chill factor to 4° to 6° F.

Saturday still appears to be the final day of work.
