Stretch Duck 7 to be raised from Table Rock Lake, media viewing location established
U.S. Coast Guard sent this bulletin at 07/22/2018 05:20 PM EDT

- What: Salvage operations on sunken duck boat, Stretch Duck 7
- When: 9 a.m. Monday, July 23
- Where: Table Rock Lake in Branson, Missouri

BRANSON, Missouri The Coast Guard will oversee salvage operations, coordinated by Ride the Ducks, of the sunken duck boat Stretch Duck 7, Monday.

Stretch Duck 7 remains at the bottom of Table Rock Lake off of the stern of the Showboat Branson Belle. The salvage plan includes bringing Stretch Duck 7 to the surface, taking it to shore and transporting it to a secure facility for further inspection and investigation, where the National Transportation Safety Board will maintain custody of it.

Salvage operations are scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Media attending must arrive no later than 8:30 a.m.

Once the vessel is removed from the water, Coast Guard Capt. Scott Stoermer will provide a brief statement about the salvage operations and will be available for a short time to answer questions from the media present about the salvage operation.

A media viewing location is established near salvage operations. For safety purposes, no more than 15 media outlets and no more than two people from each media outlet will be granted access. If more than 15 media outlets RSVP, a media pool will be required. In that case, a list of media that RSVP'd will be provided to all media that RSVP'd, and media will be responsible for working together to identify who will be included in the pool. Other than Capt. Scott Stoermer, salvage crews and other personnel on scene will not be available for media interviews. Media desiring access to the established viewing location must RSVP by emailing no later than 8 p.m. Sunday, July 22.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
