The plans are to tow the barge with house to Lindberg Marine in Fairhaven and await better weather that's expected to arrive after a potent Sou'easter storm anticipated Saturday.

Apparently the Nova Scotia style lobster boat 's mooring chain became dislodged., and had nothing to do with the strong winds!

    This Nova Scotia style lobster boat lies beached in the soft sand south of the West Island Causeway. Strong southerly winds over 26 knots (Oct 13, 2009) caused the vessel to drag or break it's mooring. This clip also shows the inside of the wheelhouse and gear in the waist. TowBoat US is handling the salvage case. High tide at 430 this afternoon with northwesterly winds may be a good time to try to free it. NOW...AT 11 AM...SHOWERS LIKELY. TEMPERATURE AROUND 53.
