CG from Grand Haven helping to salvage vessels

Investigators from Coast Guard Sector Field Office Grand Haven are working closely with commercial salvage companies to develop a plan to recover the 44-foot sailing vessel Gypsy Soul and a 21-foot commercial towing vessel that both ran aground 2 miles south of South Haven inlet on Saturday. After the operator of the Gypsy Soul reportedly experienced a propulsion problem, a commercial towing vessel came to assist and tow it to shore. However, due to rough weather at the time, both vessels ultimately ran aground.

The goal is to salvage both vessels before severe weather moves into the area later this week, Coast Guard officials said.
