Update: Treasure Queen 2 repaired after taking on water

Photos of party boat the Treasure Queen 2 went viral on Friday after the boat was seen leaning to one side and taking on water. 

Photos shared to social media caused consternation from some who thought the boat might be sinking.

However, a source who preferred not to be named told LoopTT that the situation is under control and that the vessel would be taken in for repair.

LoopTT was told the vessel, which is owned by Captain Basil Joseph of Treasure Queen Tours, had simply collected water due to what was thought to be an open valve.

The vessel was soon repaired after work was done by Saturday by 4:00 pm.
