The captain, who was the only person on board, sent out a distress call and was rescued by another vessel. The Tiger Shark would drift onto the rocks near Thunder Hole. No reports of injuries. The Tiger Shark sustained significant damage the following night. Authorities had a salvage company remove the fuel and batteries from the fishing vessel to minimize the pollution released.
