The 67 foot long, 105 gt fishing vessel Jeanoah struck a rock in the Shelikof Strait near Kodiak, Alaska. The Jeanoah tore a hole in the hull and suffered water ingress. The vessel alerted the Coast Guard who dispatched a MH-65 Jayhawk helicopter and the cutter Roanoke Island to the scene. The helicopter arrived and dropped a dewatering pump. Short time later, the cutter sent a team to assist the Jeanoah’s crew conducting temporary repairs. The nearby fishing vessel Katherine arrived on scene and took the Jeanoah under tow to sheltered waters escorted by the Roanoke Island. No reports of injuries. Reports state the vessels will proceed to Kodiak.
