F/V Bad Boy capsized, fisherman rescued

The Coast Guard responded to a 24-foot fishing vessel capsized on the Copper River Delta, near Cordova, Thursday.

Reportedly the bow picker Bad Boy capsized with one person on board while fishing. The fisherman was safely rescued by a nearby good Samaritan, the fishing vessel Crown Royal. No injuries were reported.

Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit Valdez is coordinating with federal and state agencies to oversee salvage of the vessel and ensure the safety and protection of the marine environment.

The Coast Guard is sending a team of commercial fishing vessel safety examiners to Cordova to conduct safety examinations of fishing vessels June 30th through July 3rd. These exams are conducted free of charge and mariners are highly encouraged to obtain one. Exams can be scheduled with the Coast Guard MSU Valdez examiners at 907-255-8724
