On May 12, 2008 we recovered a house boat that sank at the Long Bridge Marina on Detroit Lake. The slip was still holding the boat up so it was not resting on the bottom. The first thing we had to do was to enter the cabin and put a plug in the bilge before we could put the lift bags on and start the pumping. It was a very windy day so it ended up being a challenge to get it hauled over to the access for removal. Those working on the job were Ryan T, Karl B, Larry O, and Seal.
