The beached barge aground near Dallas Road will remain there for at least another day.
Officials called off a salvage operation due to high winds this morning.
Two barges came loose Wednesday night near Clover Point.
A tugboat pulling them to Sidney lost its tow line, sending the two vessels to the shoreline.
Salvage efforts pulled the first barge, loaded with a crane, from the beach Thursday morning.
The second barge is still stuck, sinking, and taking on water.
Booms are in place around the vessel to contain any material that may fall into the water.
The Transportation Safety Board and Transport Canada are both investigating the cause of the incident.
Heavy Metal Marine, a Malahat based business, owns both barges.
