The crew today confirmed that Ling had risen 7" from the bow with the rising tide. We used Eng's Transit to establish a reference point on the boat (Fwd most pad eye) and tracked it's position throughout the day. We confirmed that the boat is rising and falling with the tide and are making preperations for the trip down river to the yard.
