If you recall back on June 5, Nate Anderson provided us with a picture of a boat which sunk in Dutch Slough near Bethel Island. 10 days later, the boat is still there.
I made my way down a very bumpy road to get a closer look and it appears that with the current, the boat has rotated to lay as a bigger nuisance to other boaters in the area while its now considered a navigation hazard. Some residents in the are have raised concerns over oil and gas spilling into the Delta.
From what I’ve been told, the County is aware and the sheriff’s office has a report on file. It should be noted that the recovery of a vessel like this is expensive which is the likely hold up.
Here are some updated photographs from yesterday.
