Unalaska marine salvage expert Dan Magone, blast needed to free shipwrecked crabber F/V Arctic Hunter

Magone said Monday that removing the boat will start next week at the earliest. The vessel’s fishing career is over, he said. “It’s still shaped like a boat, but it’s just wreckage.” Blasting the rock away is actually a very small part of the job, he said. The biggest task involves pulling the boat from the shore with heavy cables, and then sinking it. Once secured underwater, the vessel will be lifted up and moved elsewhere, he said.
