    Hopefully the new launch is worth it!

      At least its not sunk in the ramp area. What a bummer! I wonder who has to foot the bill for getting afloat.

        they looked to be working hard to get it floating again?:eek::rolleyes:
        i would not think it would be a huge job to get it floating again, (comparatively)

                Ouch - that crane's worth way more than the barge and could require a serious overhaul now.

                        I think it is already done.

                            I was at the Whittier harbor masters office today and the barge was nowhere to be seen. I asked the lady at the office when the barge was refloated and she told me that it sunk on Monday and was refloated the same day. It is not in the harbor any more.
