Here were 1 and 2. And leading up to the sinking in 2014, here are some old photos.
And then January 16, 2014. The next few photos by Bjoern Kils, of NYMedia Boat.
Here was her sonar signature, as her exact location of sinking was marked. Photo from Bjoern.
A nameless salt sent in this photo.
And by early February 2014, the boat was brought back to the air . . . rise again. Photo below by Orlando Martinez.
March 2014, and the rehab had begun, if only the preliminaries to rehab. And a lifesaving award was granted.
During the summer, there were some articles like this one in Professional Mariner magazine.
And by November 2014, Sea Lion looked like this. Notice the funnel on the ground.
In February 2015, the funnel was in place and hull coatings applied.
By mid March, her externals looked ready to return to the water.
And then yesterday, about two weeks after she splashed back in, she was at work pushing a barge
through the Buttermilk Channel.
If you need a soundtrack, try this. Bravo, Sea Lion.
