42 Foot Fishing Vessel Salvage

Global Diving & Salvage, Inc. responded to the rescue of the shipwrecked 42’ F/V fishing vessel, hard aground on the rocky shore of Latouche Island, a remote island near the western entrance to Alaska’s pristine Prince William Sound. Global’s response included a salvage master and crew equipped to quickly mitigate the threat to the extremely sensitive marine environment through the safe recovery of fuel and other oils from the vessel. The RUFFIAN was subsequently patched, successfully refloated and towed to Whittier, Alaska where she was safely delivered to her owner.
