Photo shows fire-damaged pilothouse of decrepit crabber

The King County Sheriff Fire Investigation Unit works on the Deep Sea crabbing boat in dry dock at Stabbert Maritime in Seattle. A portion of the aluminum pilot house, seen above, melted in the fire that led to the sinking of the boat off Whidbey Island. (Photo by Erika Schultz / The Seattle Times)

Just so we don’t forget, the most recent chapter of the decrepit Deep Sea crabber saga began with the report of a fire on the old boat as it sat in Penn Cove off Whidbey Island last month.

The boat eventually sank, and fuel that leaked from it closed the nearby Penn Cove mussel farm for several weeks.

The vessel was refloated in recent days, and yesterday was pulled by tug  to a boatyard in Ballard where it will be dismantled.
