F/V RANDI LYNN Grounds in Prince William Sound

On August 14, 82-foot wooden hulled fishing tender RANDI LYNN grounded on a reef in Saw Mill Bay in Prince William Sound, while entering the bay to deliver supplies and mail to other fishing crews in that area. Minor engine room flooding resulted from the hull damage, but RANDI LYNN’s dewatering pumps kept her afloat.

RANDI LYNN was moved to a mooring buoy at nearby Chenega, where divers began temporary repairs with wedges, caulking, and plywood patches. The Coast Guard was notified on Wednesday to assess any environmental impact and to inspect the temporary repair work. RANDI LYNN had 4,000 gallons of fuel on board, none appears to have leaked, although a minor sheen resulted from dewatering the engine room. Because of the nearby fish hatchery and other marine life, a precautionary boom was used to contain the sheen.
