One of the vessels in our affiliated fleet, F/V Susan Rose, had an unintentional grounding early this morning. We are glad to report that the Captain and all crew members are safe and uninjured, and are grateful for the assistance of the Coast Guard. The vessel is in process of being extracted.
We and our affiliated companies are, and remain, committed to the safety of not only our own employees, but also the captains and crew members aboard our affiliated vessels. We express our sincere gratitude to our affiliated company, Captain and the crew of the vessel for their preparedness and adherence to safety protocols, and to the Coast Guard and other responders who all worked together to respond to this incident.
Update, November 20:
Efforts over the weekend to extract the Susan Rose resulted in the vessel taking on water, and was ultimately unsuccessful. There were no injuries during this effort. We appreciate the continued support from the Coast Guard and other responders.
