Beverly owner salvages boat that sank in Rockport during storm

(Continued)

On Friday, Arnold received multiple calls from various officials, including the harbormaster’s office and the Coast Guard. He was told that he must have the boat lifted out of the water by noon Saturday because of concerns about fuel leaking into the water.

“There’s not even 5 gallons of fuel in the thing,” Arnold said before the salvage operation began.

The Nemesis was completely submerged most of the day and night, but part of it was visible above water at low tide. With low tide Saturday at 7 a.m., Arnold arrived shortly after that to launch the salvage operation.

Arnold found the boat to be in good shape, though the outboard engine was ruined.

Arnold said that while it’s possible to fix the engine, he probably wouldn’t.
