    Bisso Marine clears crewboat from Sabine Pass

    News // July 22, 2005
    Bisso Marine reports that it recently salvaged a 110ft crewboat in Sabine Pass, Texas.

    The crewboat, which was involved in collision with a ship, rolled over and sank in approximately 50ft of water with the stern of the capsized vessel ultimately resting on the bottom and the bow keel floating above the surface.

    The sunken crewboat was positioned in the middle of the channel such that the Sabine Pass was closed by the US Coast Guard, creating a problem for inbound and out bound ship traffic whose cargos are loaded and discharged at the refineries in the Port Arthur, Texas.
