POINT PLEASANT - Crews have started working on removing the scallop boat that capsized in Manasquan Inlet near Point Pleasant earlier this month.

A salvage team used a blowtorch to begin drilling holes in the ship's hull over the weekend. Once four holes are made, a chain will be snaked through and hooked to a crane, which will pull the 150-ton boat from the water. Work has been delayed for nearly a week, and rough seas have made for difficult drilling conditions. The crane barge is expected later today, and will anchor off the beach.
