The ferry M/V Legacy went aground on a reef on Cherokee Sound near Lynyard Cay, Abaco.  Reports state the Legacy was struck by a large wave which pushed the vessel onto the reef.  The vessel began to take on water and the crew sent out a distress call.  Personnel from the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, Bahamas Air Sea Rescue Association and U.S. Navy rescued all 18 persons aboard the M/V Legacy.  No reports of injuries.  Reports are unclear if the vessel will able to be salvaged or has broken up on the reef.  The M/V Legacy routinely carries supplies to Abaco from Nassau.

Correction:  The M/V Legacy is a ro-ro ferry not an articulated tug and barge.  Thanks to the site: The Abaco Scientist

  1. MV Legacy was pulled free this morning and is under tow at this time to Marsh Harbor. The vessel does not appear to be taking on any water.
