    Busy day for sure on the sound, hurd the CG ch22 report but never saw anything. Heavy fog and lots of rain hard to see much of anything returning today.

    Why did the 104 foot boat run aground? Anyone have any details. Passage stunk tonight and you could see the sheen on the water.

    The Hana Cove had been sunk at least once, and I want to say twice before. That boat needs to be scrapped. Not sure who owns it now, but the Williams from Falls Bay used to.

    Those tender guys never sleep, they are always on the go either picking up fish from gillnetters/seiners, running to town to unload then load up with ice,fuel, supplies and right back out to take care of the fleet. I'd never want to be a tenderman. I'd bet running on autopilot and the guy on wheelwatch feel asleep, surprised it doesn't happen more often.

    The news account I heard said they were flooding and pumps couldn't keep up, so they grounded it. Makes sense.

    I think that was the 66 in Culross. Busy weekend for sure!

    Not sure if the one in in Culross Passage or on Culross Island, I know the coat guard report says grounded on Culross Island. I know a guy who ran his gill netter up on the beach out by Pogi Point (out of Homer). Admits he was sound asleep.

    Hopefully the owners and captains of these boats are being held responsible for cleanup of these vessels. Who's fault is it that they are tired.....worse than drunk driving IMNSHO. If they need some sleep there are ways to get some without grounding your boat on a rock. These issues are being blown over without a thought and then disappear to never be remembered again. It is total BS.

    O - and by cleanup, I don't mean taking your fish back to port then hoping that the sound blows your diesel all around so it is less noticeable.

    I have been on the Hana Cove. A buddy of mine used to run it back in the mid 90's.
