The Coast Guard conducted a media tour of the derelict Davy Crockett on Thursday, showcasing the progress of its deconstruction. The stern, at top, was refloated a few days ago after it was cut free from the rest of the 432-foot-long barge. The midship section remains submerged and will be cut up by divers working underwater. A coffer dam of metal sheet pilings surrounds the vessel, containing oil and other pollutants.
