Salvaging Pilot Schooner No. 5 Elbe

On June 8th, the restored 1883 built pilot schooner No.5 Elbe sank following a collision with the container ship Astrosprinter.  Salvors have now refloated the historic schooner using airbags and pumps and will now assess the extent of the damage. Images from the Pressure Drop forum.
