One of Lake Norman’s largest yachts, ironically named, ‘Shamrockin,’ recently got stuck on an incredibly shallow part of Lake Norman near Governor’s Island.
Rescue crews tried using a small crane to the salvage site today, but weren’t able to move it at all. They are now shipping in a massive 50-ton crane to the site as a last-ditch effort.
The momentous endeavor has now involved officers from Iredell County Sheriff’s Dept., Cornelius Police Dept. and NC Wildlife Resources to assist with the safety of spectators and the rescue crews.
The 50-ton crane is expected to be on site and ready to lift by mid-day this coming Saturday – it should a truly unique St. Patties day for the entire Governor Island region.
