BRUNSWICK — The final section of the Golden Ray, the cargo ship that wrecked in the St. Simons Sound, was removed Monday, according to the St. Simons Sound Incident Unified Command

For those unfamiliar with the saga of The Golden Ray, it is a cargo ship that capsized off the coast of Georgia in 2019, and has been occupying space in the St. Simons Sound since then. In May a fire broke out on the vessel and was extinguished.

Wreck removal personnel stowed the final section of the Golden Ray wreck and transported it to a local facility for partial dismantling.

Once partially dismantled, the wreck section pieces will be loaded to container barges and shipped to a recycling facility in Louisiana.
