ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - The Canadian Coast Guard is investigating more reports of oil leaking from a shipwreck off the north coast of Newfoundland.
A local boater spotted a sheen on the water near the site of the Manolis L (muh-NO'-liss ell), which sank near Change Islands in 1985 with more than 500 tonnes of fuel oil and diesel onboard.
The coast guard installed a so-called coffer dam in July to catch tiny amounts of escaping oil.
A few months before, neoprene gaskets were used to plug two cracks in the ship's hull.
The coast guard says it hopes to visit the site soon to inspect the vessel.
