Default Becky's Demolition to Begin Today

According to news reports, Delta Demolition crews are to begin salvaging the sunken BECKY THATCHER today. A crane barge is to lift pieces of the boat out of the river and over the wall onto the property of Frontier Steel. It will be determined if the steel hull can be salvaged to become a barge -- or will need to be cut up and sold for scrap.

For more details click on Beaver County Times:Salvage company prepared to pull riverboat out of Ohio Then click on LOCAL at the top and scroll down to find the article and photo.

Bye Bye Becky! You were a grand old gal and we'll miss you!
