090528 Chevron Vessel 493F3 

This 48′ X 12′ Steel Hull Utility Vessel was washed up on Chevron property by Hurricane George in 1998. Hurricane Katrina moved the Vessel further up into Chevron property in 2005. Chevron contacted the Mississippi Derelict Vessel program to remove the unclaimed boat. After public notices and a court order, the Vessel was removed, cleaned, and deployed in FH-3 (Shallow Liberty Ship Site) on May 28, 2009, 1:18PM, at the above coordinates. She appeared to land upright in 45 feet of water with a clearance of about 40 feet with the bow facing in a generally West direction. Weather conditions were relatively calm and flat with a slight current running from West to East.
