A barge that’s been sitting in the bay since May 10 still hasn’t been moved.

A tugboat that was used to move the barge into place for a fireworks show also sank.

Over the weekend, a second tugboat that was supposed to move both vessels, is also stuck there now after it began taking on water.

The man who brought in the barge and the tugboat had said he would remove them on Friday.

The general land office says a crane barge is now on its way to remove the two tug boats and place them on the barge.

Then, they’ll try to remove the barge.
