EDITOR'S NOTE: Contractors from Coos Bay were en route to Brookings Wednesday afternoon with a crane to lift the boat from the water. Petty Officer 1st Class David Mosley, public affairs officer for the Coast Guard, said divers could be in the water as early as tomorrow or Friday to raise the boat and remove it from the channel.

Divers will place bags in the boat which will be filled with air to lift it to the surface. The boat will then be manuevered to the harbor where the crane will lift it from the water.
