Fishing Tender ‘Fate Hunter’ Runs Aground Near Valdez
There is another fishing tender aground in Alaska. This time it’s in Port Valdez.
The 65-foot “Fate Hunter” ran aground Sunday and four people were rescued by a fishing vessel.
The Coast Guard reports what it calls a “light sheen” spreading from the boat, with an estimated 1,500 gallons of fuel aboard and a containment response and possible refloating was planned. They say the vessel appears to not be structurally damaged.
