Golfer attending the PGA Tour event on the Sea Island Resort campus every day sees Golden Ray – a ship sinking near the shore next to the yard.

Fourteen months ago, Golden Ray was 200 meters long carrying 4,200 cars leaving the port of Brunswick, but could not go far. It shifted, then tilted completely to the side and couldn’t hold it. The entire crew escaped, and Golden Ray, up to now, is still there with the entire number of rows.

During the same week RSM Classic was in November of last year, this giant ship was the hot topic besides competition.

“The most common is the parking question, the second one is Golden Ray,” said Davis Love III Golfweek. He is a longtime resident of Sea Island, presiding and competing in RSM Classic. But this year, Love III did not compete for the title because of injury.

“For over a year, it has become a tourist attraction. Many people have come to see it because it is not always possible to see the flip ship every day? But I find it astonishing,” said David Minshew – 20 years resident of Sea Island – comment.

Immediately after the incident, the crew pumped nearly 1,200 cubic meters of oil out of Golden Ray to avoid an environmental disaster. Nearly a quarter of the hull was flooded with 18 meters of sand, so the functional forces only had to fragment it to clean the scene.

The remedial work faced many obstacles because of Golden Ray’s massive size, storm season, nCoV positive cases in the rescue team and the technical infrastructure.

Two weeks ago, the dismantling of the ship, scheduled for eight parts, was underway. The rescue unit had to mobilize “super athlete” VB 10000 to serve the salvage. This is the largest floating crane with the American flag, 68 meters high with a lifting capacity of 7,500 tons.

The Georgia State Natural Resources Authority placed live cameras until Golden Ray was completed.
