Still stuck – No luck moving grounded shrimp trawler

Crews have still had no luck moving a Wanchese shrimp trawler that has been in the breakers off in Southern Shores since grounding earlier this week,,, F/V Bald Eagle II, a 78-foot-long steel hulled trawler, first ran into engine trouble Tuesday around 7:30 a.m. and then a net snagged the propeller, the crew dropped anchor but were unable to prevent the vessel from reaching the shoreline off Dogwood Drive. A salvage team and another Wanchese-based trawler tried to refloat the vessel during high tide overnight, but the tow rope broke, and their efforts were for naught.
