Photos: Oyster Bay Boat Raising

The FBI raised the "Kandi Won" on Monday after it sank in Oyster Bay Harbor during a tragic accident on July 4.

The boat "Kandi Won" part of the terrible boating accident in Oyster Bay
was raised today and brought onto land for further investigation. Please see
these exclusive photos taken just minutes after the boat was brought to dock.

3 dead and 24 rescued - still ponders the question - why were there 27 persons
aboard a 34 foot boat - and aren't their specific regulations regarding the maximum
number of persons allowed on a boat of a particular size?  If not, there should be.

this failed on every level possible. a true worst case scenario, overloaded boat, overloaded harbor, thunderstorms approaching, panic driven boaters flee in every direction. inadequate staffing on hand to deal with a underwater RESCUE. i heard it took TWO hours til a legitimate dive occurred!
