A crewboat damaged in a collision with a liftboat off the Louisiana coast earlier this month has been salvaged and is heading to a shipyard for repairs.

On Friday, Jewel Marine’s Diamond Edge crewboat was spotted aboard a barge in Bayou Lafourche towards a repair facility in Louisiana.

The steel-hulled crewboat was damaged and partially sank after colliding with a Halliburton-owned liftboat off Freshwater Bayou in the Gulf of Mexico on March 2, 2015. The incident left the crewboat with a hole in its stern, causing it to partially submerge in approximately 9 feet of water.

None of the four crewmembers aboard the crew were injured in the accident.
