Alaska Fishing Fleet Tragedy – Coast Guard begins hearings

KATMAI, a 93-foot head and gut fishing vessel capsized and sank in the Aleutian Islands early in the morning on Wednesday, October 22. It appears that only four of the KATMAI’s eleven crew members survived.

The last communication from the KATMAI was an e-mail reporting water into the lazerette, and loss of steering. The vessel foundered in the trough of 20-foot seas and capsized, casting her crew into the 43 degree waters of the North Pacific.

The Coast Guard has begun hearings in Anchorage to investigate the KATMAI sinking. There will be an opportunity to determine the cause of this sinking.
