The U.S. Coast Guard has asked for our help in distributing the important Boating Public Notice found below. The barge “Vengeance” sunk and is now sitting only 2′ feet below the waterline at low tide and less that 8′ at high tide, representing an extreme hazard. Salvage operations will begin shortly and all boaters are advised to avoid the area.
Boaters needing to transit the Eastern Span of the Bay Bridge should use extreme caution and be sure to stay well out of the restricted zone. The USCG recommends boaters transit the Eastern Span of the bridge west of pier H, while remaining cognizant of the restricted zone on the eastern shore of Yerba Buena..
