The Coast Guard is reporting that the bulk carrier Golden Seas successfully anchored in Broad Bay in Dutch Harbor early Tuesday afternoon after the tug Tor Viking II towed it more than 500 miles along the Aleutian Islands through seas of more than 20 feet at times.

The Golden Seas will remain at anchor in Dutch Harbor while repairs are made.  The Coast Guard will monitor repair work to ensure the vessel and its engine is safe for the continued voyage.
