Derelict vessel sinks in Oak Bay
The Salla Rose sits ensconced in as second round of absorbent oil booms after sinking in Oak Bay on Monday.
“With Coast Guard Environmental response we swapped out the saturated absorbent oil booms with new ones this morning,” said Tim Johnston, of C-Tow Marine. “The amount of diesel coming up was very reduced from even 8:30 this morning, so we think that’s almost it.”
The Coast Guard received a report before noon Monday that the boat had sunk just outside Oak Bay Marina. No one was aboard the 45-foot sailboat and no injuries were reported.
However, diesel was visible immediately on the water and C-Tow Oak Bay placed sorbent pads around vessel. More
