NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Several boats remain at the bottom of the lake at Four Corners Marina after last week’s EF-1 tornado.

Crews were able to pull out 11 boats Wednesday and only have six more to go. The caption of Town Boats U.S. told News 2 they are actually ahead of schedule.

The owner of the marina also sent out a letter to slip owners saying he’s made some important and quick decisions to resolve the disaster as quickly as he can in the safest possible way.
