MENASHA - Officials are assuring boat owners that all trapped vessels will be taken care of until the Menasha lock reopens.

Menasha Marina's harbormaster says boats will be harbored there safely and securely.

The lock broke down again Friday, just one day after it re-opened following repairs on a door hinge.

The Fox River Navigational Authority says the next step is to dig deeper and determine what caused the problem. That process won't begin until Monday.

Around 200 boaters were expected to use the lock this holiday weekend.

There is no word on when it could re-open.
