Success: Sunken yacht raised on second attempt
The second tried proved to be the charm for the crew working to raise a sunken yacht in the St. Croix River at Hudson.
A crane from the Stillwater bridge construction site was able to lift the 65-foot, three-story SkipperLiner to the surface early Thursday morning, aided by huge pumps that bailed water from the boat as it was raised.
The Edward Kraemer & Sons crane arrived at the dock along the dike road in Lakefront Park sometime around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.
