Little Pond recovery effort

Efforts to haul the Agra 1 off the bottom off Little Pond have been delayed until the weekend.

The Salvage company is bringing in a larger and more powerful tug.  It’s also putting more pumps aboard to get rid of water in the ballast tanks and lighten ship.

Transportation Minister Geoff MacLellan is satisfied that the salvage operation is going as smoothly as possible, although he admits the longer the small tanker sits there the more opportunity there is for a catastrophe.
