ST. CROIX RIVER, Minn. (WCCO) -- The half-sunken houseboat on the St. Croix may be there for a while.

After renting a crane from the Stillwater bridge construction site on Wednesday evening, crews started trying to hoist the cruise ship. But apparently a leak prohibited them from lifting it.

The crane had to be returned by midnight, so it's not clear when crews will be able to move the boat.
