The 59 foot long supply vessel Endeavour ran aground in St. Lucie Inlet off Sewall’s Point, Florida. The supply vessel was being used to bring aid to Haiti when it ran aground. The Endeavour later partially sank on the following high tide and released some of its 2000 gallons of diesel fuel on board. A light sheen was visible around the vessel. Authorities have contracted a salvage firm to raise the vessel and handle pollution cleanup. No reports of injuries to the five persons on board.
The 60 foot long fishing vessel Endeavor suffered water ingress near Yaquina Bay, Oregon. The fishing vessel had been struck by a large swell the night before which caused a leak in the vessel. The crew had discovered flooding in the engine room and contacted the Coast Guard requesting assistance. The Coast Guard dispatched the 47-foot long Motor Life Boat to the scene. The Coast Guard was able to pass two dewatering pumps to the fishing vessel. With the pumps, the flooding was brought under control. The Motor Life Boat then escorted the Endeavor back to port. No reports of injuries or pollution released.
