The 108 foot long, 171 ton fishing vessel Osprey went aground near Ten Pound Island, Massachusetts. The herring trawler had just departed from Gloucester when it struck bottom and damaged one of the vessel’s fuel tanks. Some 150 gallons of fuel oil was released into the water. The Osprey was able to return back to Gloucester under its own power. Authorities placed a containment boom around the Osprey while removing the remaining fuel.
The 45 foot fishing vessel Osprey sank off Point Loma, San Diego, California. The Osprey with eight crewmen on board had contacted the Coast Guard that there was smoke coming from the engine compartment and the vessel was taking on water. The Coast Guard dispatched a helicopter to the scene with a pump. The crew of the Osprey were able to start the pump, but it was not able to keep up with the water ingress. The helicopter hoisted all eight men off the Osprey. The fishing vessel sank shortly afterwards. No reports of injuries.
