The waterborne, or rather water-logged, circus that has enthralled the Brookings area for the last week has finally moved from center ring in the middle of the Chetco River channel.

Floated by inflated air bags and pulled by another boat, the Jo Marie was moved to a barge slip around Monday evening. Since then, workers have begun the task of pulling the boat onto dry land to dismantle the vessel and remove the remaining fuel.
