Day 15

One of the Magone crew put on a wetsuit to look for pieces in the ice near shore. The rest of the crew continued to bag small pieces that were underneath the last remaining piece that had been pulled down the previous day. Finally, the SV Redeemer came out to pull the last piece aboard. Even though the ice is still thick, getting the hawser line ashore was much easier as there was a path clear of ice.

The last piece was hauled aboard and the crane, excavator and all other equipment (torch lines and tanks) were removed and hauled back to the barge.

The SV Redeemer, SV Western Viking and the Keshega barge departed St Paul harbor at 11:00 p.m.

The goal of removing the FV Ocean Clipper by 11:59 p.m. May 1 had been achieved.
