Southampton Town Lifts Sinking Vessel From Shinnecock Dock

The Southampton Town Parks Department supervised the removal of a sunken vessel at Shinnecock Commercial Fishing Dock on Friday December 23, 2016.  The 40 foot long fishing vessel had been abandoned and fallen into disrepair and ultimately started to sink in Shinnecock Harbor.  The U.S. Coast Guard led the effort and contracted with Miller Environmental and L.I. Crane to lift the boat by crane to the dock and remove any fluids.  Town Parks Director Kristen Doulos and Maintenance Supervisor Jon Erwin helped direct the effort.  The boat was retrieved in one piece and placed in a containment area on the dock where it will remain until proper disposition can be determined.  The owner did not respond to numerous communications made by the Town Attorney’s office.  The boat’s owner will be charged for the removal and back dockage fees.
