The 53 foot long fishing vessel Ashlyne became disabled near the entrance of the Columbia River. The vessel’s cargo of 70,000 pounds of fish had shifted resulting in a heavy list. At the same time, the sea conditions had swells between eight to 12 feet which increased the risk the Ashlyne would capsized. The four man crew contacted the Coast Guard for assistance as they attempted to return to port. The Coast guard dispatched a Jayhawk helicopter along with the 47-foot motor lifeboat to the scene. The Coast Guard then proceeded to escort the Ashlyne to Ilwaco, Washington. No reports of injuries or pollution being released. The Coast Guard has restricted the fishing vessel to port until it can be examined by inspectors.
