The 57-foot long fishing vessel Capt?n Andrew went aground off King Cove, Alaska. The vessel was in poor visibility and 10-knot winds went it grounded. Communication was poor and a distress message had to be relayed to the Coast Guard. Two fishing vessels, Golden Dawn and Just In Case, responded to the call along with the Coast Guard. The Just In Case, the sister ship of the Capt?n Andrew, was first on scene and rescued all 5 crewmen on board. The Capt?n Andrew is partially submerged with 2,000 gallons of diesel fuel. It is quite possible that some fuel has been spilled. A salvage company has been contracted to assess the situation. The Coast Guard is conducting an investigation into the accident.
