F/V TEMPEST, perhaps the 41-foot TEMPEST belonging to Lundli Fisheries, LLC, in Shoreline, WA, burned to the waterline the night of August 3. Apparently, the engine room had caught fire near Knight Island in Prince William Sound, Alaska. An as yet unnamed Good Samaritan vessel took on the four TEMPEST crewmembers. When the Coast Guard flew over the area the next day, they found no boat and no fuel sheen.
