Pumping and pulling day and night to free the New Carissa

New Carissa salvage requires 24/7 work.

Crews are working around the clock to salvage The New Carissa from the sand near Coos Bay/North Bend. The occasional clank of a link from the chains pulling at the wreck, being drawn through the "pullers", can be heard on the shore, indicating that progress is being made but emphasizing that patience must prevail.
