Judge suspends mariner’s credentials

A U.S. Administrative Law Judge suspended the merchant mariner credential of Cindy Stahl of Bainbridge Island for six months on Oct. 7, 2015 for operating a commercial towing vessel with an invalid credential.

On Feb. 17, 2015, Stahl wrongfully assumed direction and control of the towing vessel Shannon in Elliot Bay with an invalid credential in violation of U.S. laws and regulations. 
Stahl’s credential was suspended at the time as a result of a previous violation during which she endangered the crew and passengers aboard multiple Washington State ferries by purposely hindering their safe transit in Elliot Bay near Seattle on Oct. 7, 2014.

Stahl had also previously been issued a Letter of Warning by the Coast Guard in March 2013 and had her credential suspended for three months in September 2013, both for other violations of U.S. laws and regulations.
