September 18, 2013

Another fishing tender vessel got in trouble in Alaska waters Tuesday, but was towed to safety by the Coast Guard.

The Chignik-based Express reported it had lost power and was adrift 70 miles west of Hoonah.

The 110-foot cutter Anacapa was dispatched to help, and was able to bring the 125-foot vessel in to the Hoonah port.
