On 8-9-20, the Macomb County Sheriffs Office responded to this sinking vessel off of 9 Mile, just outside of Emerald City Harbor/Jefferson Beach Marina. Everyone on the vessel was rescued and safely brought to shore by the U.S. Coast Guard. The Macomb County Sheriff’s Office has been in communication with multiple agencies in attempts to have this vessel removed, however, it’s removal may take some time; several months even. The U.S. Coast Guard is announcing this hazard every 30 minutes during darkness and every 4 hours during daylight via marine channel 16 - the channel for hailing and distress. We realize that not all boaters have a marine radio and/or radar to be notified of this hazard. We are asking boaters to please share this post for awareness. We want everyone to enjoy our wonderful lake and stay safe! Thank you.
