Approximately 50 boats are either lodged ashore or sitting at the bottom of the bay. Almost two weeks ago, a 160-foot crane was brought in to help move the boats and help them float once again. “Nothing is getting done out here. As far as I know, they have the one crane out here. This is the second boat in two weeks,” said shrimp boat Captain Roger Schmall. This week the crane finally began to refloat a second shrimp boat called “Lexi Joe”. Video, >click to read< 16:51
