CAMDEN — The Loose Cannon was raised off the bottom of Camden Harbor Wednesday, Oct. 1, courtesy of Rob Iserbyt, owner of Rockport Charters. It was raised with 10 flotation mooring balls.

“By using mooring ballls, I could keep the boat upright,” said Iserbyt. “The boat is in good shape.”

The Loose Cannon, a 24-foot fiberglass sloop is a close to 20 years old.

Iserbyt lifted the boat enough from the water and took it to the crane at Wayfarer, where it was lifted into the air and the water pumped from it.

“It sat quietly firmly on the bottom of the harbor in a couple of feet of mud,” said Iserbyt. The boat draws approximately 3.5 feet.
