Mechanical failure said to have caused yacht to sink at Hudson dock
A mechanical failure that allowed water to enter the 65-foot Find Time yacht is the reason it sank, Gordy Jarvis, the owner of the Hudson dock where it was tied, said Friday morning.
Once the three-story boat lost its buoyancy, the water came in from windows and other places, too, Jarvis said.
It took a 24-hour effort to raise the 171-ton, steel-hulled boat, he reported.
The second – and successful – salvage operation started at 6 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4.
