NEW BEDFORD — Crews managed to lift the fishing vessel Nemesis out of about 20 feet of water on Friday.
The Dinah Jane remained submerged but will be pulled from the water soon. It has yet to be determined when exactly.
The two Carlos Rafael scallopers sank around 1:30 a.m. Monday at Homer’s Wharf.
On Friday, crews blew air into the sunken vessel and used a crane to stabilize it. After examination, the Nemesis will likely remain docked off Homer's Wharf, according to the Harbor Development Commission.
Normally, when vessels sink in the port, the owner’s insurance company pays for the boats to be retrieved, according to the commission.
Carlos Seafood Inc. didn’t return requests for comment on Friday.
The New Bedford Police Department, which reported to the scene early Monday, confirmed Friday afternoon that the U.S. Coast Guard is investigating the sunken scallopers.
