SPOKANE -- The state is taking steps to raise a sunken 41-foot fishing vessel lying at the bottom of the Columbia River near Finley.
That's necessary to prevent environmental damage from approximately 50 gallons of diesel fuel and eight gallons of engine and hydraulic oil on board.
The boat sank in 40 feet of water July 12, about two miles downstream of Two Rivers Park in Finley.
The state has hired Global Diving & Salvage Inc. to recover the boat and offload the fuel and oil. The money comes from the federal Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund and the Department of Natural Resources Derelict Vessel Removal Program.
