Wrecked boat out 6 months for repair... replacing a ravaged hull and a torn-away bow

[UPDATE-March 31st 10:00pm]
Wednesday morning the weather took a turn for the better, if only long enough for the tug boat to bring Conception into Ventura Harbor where she was lifted into the safety of a repair yard. Everyone involved in the salvage effort can now breathe a small sigh of relief. It has been exactly one week since the Conception was abandoned on the rocky shore along Vandenberg Air Force Base. While it will take a long time (we estimate four to six months) to bring Conception back to pristine condition the amount of effort it has taken to get her this far has been enormous. It is truly astounding that a wooden boat could be stranded for so long on a rocky beach, yet the boat endured and work continued until she was saved. We at Truth Aquatics have many people to thank for their effort and part in saving a boat so many have grown to love. Thank you all so very much. Please continue to check back for updates about the Conception. [Chris Callahan]
