SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- A large shrimp boat that had capsized at a dock on the Wilmington River has been raised.

The Savannah Morning News (http://bit.ly/MUCNfp ) reports that crews raised the 70-foot-long Capt Van on Sunday. It had capsized at the dock of Thunderbolt Fisherman Seafood on July 2. Company owner Frank Dubberly says the boat's owner has not been seen since shortly after it capsized. He said the dock will need some repairs, but he's glad to have it back in business.

An official with the company that helped raise the boat says it will be sold for scrap.
