Boat salvage refers to the process of recovering a damaged or sunk boat and repairing it to make it seaworthy again. Salvage operations involve a variety of techniques and equipment, including cranes, pumps, and divers, to retrieve the boat from the water and assess the extent of the damage. Once the boat is salvaged, it may need to undergo extensive repairs or even be completely rebuilt, depending on the severity of the damage. Boat salvage can be a costly and time-consuming process, but it is often the only option for recovering a valuable vessel and preventing further damage to the environment.
Working on the Rivers Wissey and Great Ouse, we retrieved two sunken vessels and cleared the waterways for boaters and anglers alike.
