VICTORIA — A vessel that is sinking off the shores of Deep Bay, north of Parksville, is set to be pulled from the island harbour this week.

A local resident says that the boat has been anchored off Deep Bay for the past 10 years. However, it recently sunk due to windstorms, the resident said.

A salvage company that is assisting the Canadian Coast Guard with removing the boat says multiple organizations have attended to the site.

The company and the coast guard returned to the site Wednesday to reset some water lift bags. Coltart says the vessel is now ready to be towed back to shore to Colmor Marine Group’s salvage yard in Union Bay.
