Crews in Colliers carefully dismantle shipwrecked fishing vessel

A ship that sank in Newfoundland’s Conception Bay 16 years ago is now being demolished and will be recycled, according to the Canadian Coast Guard. The Hamilton Banker has a lengthy history. The fishing vessel sank in June 2006 in Harbour Grace, before being refloated and towed to nearby Colliers. Andrew Wakeham, a senior response officer with the coast guard’s environmental response program, says the ship eventually drifted ashore and ran aground during the January 2020 blizzard known as Snowmageddon, and has remained there ever since. photos, Video, >click to read< 12:06
