The U.S. Coast Guard is working with salvage crews to figure out how to shift the trawler. It is likely to be at least 24 hours before the vessel can be moved.

The 70-foot boat is badly damaged and it is wedged under the bridge in shallow water.

The Big Timber drifted in the high winds from Oyster Point to the bridge on Tuesday after its transmission failed.
