THIS IS A FOLLOW UP TO A PREVIOUS POST...BTW, TRY SAYING 'TUG STILL STUCK' THREE TIMES AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN!
The Coast Guard has suspended its efforts to free a tugboat that has become stuck on a sandbar near Crisp Point in Lake Superior.
Coast Guard officials in Sault Sainte Marie say the waves and the wind have become too strong for them to continue trying to free the tug Seneca.
The Seneca has been stuck on the sandbar west of Whitefish Bay since being abandoned December second during a winter storm.
More than 19-hundred gallons of an environmentally hazardous material continues to be removed from the boat.
The Coast Guard says it may be a few more days until the weather calms down enough for work to resume on freeing the tugboat.
