NTSB Concludes Investigation of F/V Katmai Sinking

The investigation into the sinking of the Fishing Vessel Katmai is officially over. The National Transportation Safety Board released their report on the disaster, and it concluded that the boat had a number of stability problems that made it unable to withstand extreme storm conditions in the Bering Sea. As a result, seven lives were lost when the head-and-gut vessel flooded in 2008.
