 Ocean Ranger  (Fishing Vessel)

Ocean Ranger ran onto reef
The "Ocean Ranger" from Homer ran aground outside an Unalaska harbor in the evening of Sep 16, 2014, after going the wrong way around a channel marker. The fishing vessel was heading into the Bobby Storrs Boat Harbor around 6 p.m. when it struck a reef. The crew obviously didn’t follow the intention of the markers or they would have missed the reef. The vessel tore its hull and took on some water in the grounding. No one was injured, and the Coast Guard didn't find any environmental damage. The "Ocean Ranger" was able to get off with own means and headed to the Resolve-Magone Marine Services salvage yard, where the boat's crew was working on repairing the damaged hull on Sep 17. They were part of the fishing fleet from Homer's Russian Old Believer community. Report with photo: kucb.org/news/art...
