Not sure I understand the post by Jason. The Wakerobin sank on April 6, 2005, not at a dock ,but tied off to the shore at mile 483.0,LDB. Cause of sinking was not a rain storm. Salvage was started in May 2005, completed in July. The hull is now a landing barge at BB Riverboats. The engines were saved and are on display at the Chilo Lock#34 musuem.
